Brian Shimkovitz passionately runs the blog turned reissue-label Awesome Tapes from Africa with the goal to turn down geographic borders in music distribution and give African music a curated digital and physical outlet. Up next on its release schedule is a reissue of South African Tsonga disco musician Penny Penny‘s debut album Shaka Bundu which he originally released in his mid-thirties back in 1994.
