Awesome Tapes From Africa Tour Dates

Since 2006, Brian Shimkovitz's Awesome Tapes From Africa blog has been shedding light on obscure and wonderful sounds from across the continent. As a DJ he brings the blog to life with sets that blend folkloric pop, left-field dancefloor gems and hip-hop bangers he's collected on African marketplace finds.

Travelling from club to festival to DIY space, Awesome Tapes From Africa DJ sets celebrate the music and musicians whose cassettes Shimkovitz has collected over the years.
