There is a Stern's store in Tribeca at Warren Street, but I don't know if
Stern's carries that music or not.
Try www.mzibo.net for information and purchase of Tanzanian music. There is
a U.S. produced CD called " Bongo Blastin' " that is a compilation of music
you can hear and download at mzibonet. I know that a number of African
record stores here carry it.
You can get info and some links at www.africanhiphop.com/
You can also buy from Panafrican Allstars at www.panafricanallstars.com or
call them for information (I recommend this) at (404)-684)-9955.
You can get some, but not all, of the new Zambian music from the Mondo Music
label from www.zambianmusic.com/
