Tanzanian Hip-Hop, Yo!

I've recently become acquainted with X Plastaz, a hip-hop group from Tanzania. I guess they're from Arusha, which is up in the northeast corner of the country. So far so good!

I talked a bit about world music a few months ago after we went to see Ladysmith Black Mambazo. So while we're at it, here's the Calabash Music global music store, with all sorts of stuff you never knew you'd like from all over the world. Plus, African hip-hop and the National Geographic World Music page.

(I think they're on Mt. Kilimanjaro on this one.)
