NAIROBI, Kenya, October 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Africa's premiere library of classic tunes is hooking up with the continent's most distinctive archive of images and video in a historic partnership. AFRICA24 MEDIA is proud to announce a successful courtship with Al Records Kenya Ltd. The result should be some dazzling offspring - classic music videos, using the great moments of African history, blasts from the past as we see African styles and trends from the last 5 decades, and new scenes as the continent continues to produce colourful new ideas.
AFRICA24 MEDIA boasts exclusive access to the 50 year old Camerapix Ltd archive, boasting historic events such as Bokassa's coronation, Bob Marley's Zimbabwe Independence concert, Queen Elizabeth's visit to Kenya - as well as the East African Safari rally, tribes from across East Africa, and even scenes from Zanzibar in the'60's,'70's and'80's. Al Records brings such classics as "Pole Mzee" by Miriam Makeba; "Bwana Nipe Pesa" from Van Rosi; Them Mushroom's hit Africa; "Ujirani Mwema" by the incomparable Mbarak Mwinshene; and the unforgettable tribute to African beauty; "Malaika" of TB Eagles Band Lupopo.
AFRICA24 MEDIA CEO Asif Sheikh: "When I hear Africa's classic melodies they take me back to my childhood, when everything here seemed new. I think of riding my bike down Nairobi's old avenues, listening to greats like Them Mushrooms and Remmy Ongala. Married up with
our video, these will move people like me to relive the old days, while my kids can learn a little history."
Al Records Chief John Andrews: "When I started looking through AFRICA24's visual library, I thought'Wow; I didn't know anyone had even shot some of that stuff, let alone saved it. I can't wait to see what we can do with these songs that are so dear to my heart, and video I never expected to see!"
Two of the biggest archives in Africa teaming together to make content that is both educational, as well as entertaining, is great news for broadcasters, mobile phone content providers, VOD platforms, TV music shows and those celebrating historic events!
