Archivists and archive-trawlers alike do wonderful work all the time, but the history of this release is really something else. In 1988, the tapes containing fifty years of wonderful Somali music were smuggled out of Somalia and literally buried underground to protect them from the forthcoming civil war. They were only retrieved recently. Sweet As Broken Dates gives a glorious insight into the poetic and funky sounds of pre-war Somalia: very valuable listening. On Ostinato Records.
