Faces of Africa - Zamrock Survivors
This is a great documentary on the Zamrock scene from the 1970s. The extreme parochialism of radio and other music media in the US meant that other than the UK, Canada, and occasionally Australia that Americans were rarely exposed to music from other countries. This was true even regarding English speaking countries like Zambia. But, today there is absolutely no excuse to remain unenlightened and ignorant. If you are not familiar with African rock music go educate yourself. I mean it, turn off that white boys stuff and tune into some Zamrock.
