Ethical Access to “Music Time in Africa”

A recent NEH award of $260,000 to the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor supports the digitization and online access to an archive of African popular music dating from the 1960s to the 1980s. It includes about 7,500 hours of audio recordings, program scripts and field notes. The materials were collected and created by Leo Sarkisian for the Voice of America radio program Music Time in Africa, VOA’s longest running English language program.
