Yesterday I filed a story for VOA’s Daybreak Africa program on a great website called Africa Unsigned. It uses crowdfunding to raise money for African and Africa diaspora musicians. Check the site out for some great music.
Highlights of the interview:
1. Got serenaded by Rina Mushonga and included it in the piece. I don’t know that much about singing, but I bet it takes great pipes to sound that good while singing through a cell phone from Amsterdam to DC.
2. Pim, Africa Unsigned’s founder, hinted that they’re trying to use mobile phones as a payment method to pay online (mainly because credit cards aren’t that mainstream, thus hard to buy things online).
