Botswanan Metal on CNN Inside Africa

Comments Off on Botswanan Metal on CNN Inside Africa

CNN’s Inside Africa programme has a story this week on Botswanan Metal. I haven’t caught it yet but it’s repeated several times during the week. I’ve had an interest in Botswanan metal for a while and I hope to visit the country and explore it’s metal scene as part of my Unbound project. Obviously I have some bitter-sweet feelings about the ‘discovery’ of the scene by CNN – selfishly I guess, I wanted to be the one who ‘revealed’ it to the world!

With names like Demon and Gunsmoke it would be easy to dismiss the rockers as thugs. In fact, the titles come with a strong awareness of social responsibility.
