AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #28: THE BROTHER MOVES ON

For Africa In Your Earbuds #28 The Brother Moves On mix Tumi and The Volume, Animal Collective, Just A Band, Gil Scott-Heron, Kay Ara + more.


Jo'burg based The Brother Moves On aren't easy to condense. The self-described "collaborative piece of performance art in the form of a band," often labeled by SA writers as 'afro space folk funk,' live in a highly-hybrid realm, compounding a vast number of genres and ideas in search of a sound with which to describe post-apartheid South Africa.

For this installment Africa In Your Earbuds The Brother Moves On offer a dense mix featuring tracks/reworkings from an ecletic cast: Tumi and The Volume, Animal Collective, Just A Band, Gil Scott-Heron and Kay Ara and an introduction that pairs audio from Neil Armstrong's moon landing with H.F. Verwoed speaking on apartheid.

Stream and download AIYE #28: The Brother Moves On "The Mothership" below! Shout out to Underdog for the cover artwork.

Pregnant Tanzanian Girls Now Have Hope Of An Education

In the past, Tanzania's pregnant girls of school-going age were banned from accessing an education. However, things are about to change!

In Tanzania currently, an estimated 5 500 girls are forced to leave school each year due to pregnancy, according to the World Bank.

The Tanzanian government has announced a new programme aimed at addressing the plight of young girls who have been impacted by this discriminatory ban.
