Radio Tanzania Music Archives

Bruno Nanguka, known as “The Librarian”, joined Radio Tanzania back in 1974, slowly working his way up to the role of Head of Library Services for the Tanzania Broadcast Corporation. His knowledge of the archives, and the groups who recorded them, is unmatched. Despite most of the archives not being catalogued, he knows where to find every last recording. Yet he is the only one. “My colleagues, they have died or gone away. It’s just me”, he says, highlighting the pressing need for preservation.
