First we want to apologize. Some of you subscribed in november 2001, you have been waiting a long time for this first mail. We are really sorry about that.
There are two reasons for this delay. First, we have been busy, creating a web community is a lot of work. The next reason is that we may have aimed a bit too high. We want to make this letter interesting.
This first newsletter is simply a list of our latest and most interesting updates. ENJOY!
(Everything mentioned in this letter is listed at http://www.ethnobass.org/whatsnew.htm)
We are also proud to introduce you to three new Official homepages, Hosted by EthnoBass. These Official homepages are made, maintained and hosted by the EthnoBass staff.

Next artists out is Miguel Gil (Spain) and Rukiza Okera (Tanzania/UK)
