Introducing Vinyl to the Wild Men of the Kalahari 1930



This rare piece of footage documents the first time African Tribesmen were exposed to music playing from a portable gramophone. The tribesmen were most surprised to hear voices coming from this small box and actually thought it possible that little people were trapped inside singing or playing their little hearts out. This is also the first time any of them had seen Vinyl.

Hence to say that it wasnt long before the Kalahari were rocking clubs and fields around the world. Not to mention the complete domination of JAZZ!!!
