How would you feel if you discovered an historic collection of African music, forgotten by the world for decades? And what would you do if you learned it was in danger of being lost forever?

The Radio Tanzania Dar-es-Salaam archives contain over 100,000 hours of priceless Tanzanian music on damaged and deteriorating reel-to-reel tapes, and they need our help. The Tanzania Heritage Project is raising awareness and support for the preservation, digitization, and restoration of this priceless audio collection. We rely on donations to carry out this critical work – if you feel you can contribute financially, please follow the donate link on the main menu. We’re grateful for your support!
