“The blog Awesome Tapes From Africa delivers on the promise of its name.”
—Village Voice

Ethnomusicologist Brian Shimkovitz, the writer behind the popular blog Awesome Tapes From Africa, spins some of the best of the folkloric pop, left-field dance-floor gems, and hip-hop bangers from his massive collection of ultra-rare African cassette tape finds. This eye- and ear-opening DJ set will introduce listeners to some of the most obscure and wonderful sounds from across the continent.

BAMcafé Live Host: Phillip Andry 
BAMcafé Live House DJ: DJ Idlemind “The Appropriate Agent”
