Music in Africa: SAMRO Foundation to preserve SA music heritage

Music in Africa: SAMRO Foundation to preserve SA music heritage. “The Southern African Music Rights Organisation (SAMRO) Foundation was awarded last week R1.2m ($85 000) by the US Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP) to kick start the Indigenous African Music (I AM) project. The project seeks to transcribe 53 South African traditional musical scores to Western notation. The process will create an archive accessible to all South Africans interested in learning about their heritage.”
