DOWNLOAD: UNWTO 2013 Mixtape Highlights Zambia and Zimbabwe
Slam Dunk Records TV of Zambia and Da Grapevine TV of Zimbabwe came together to bring about a first of its kind in the form of the UNWTO 2013 Mixtape. The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) is the United Nations agency responsible for the promotion of responsible, sustainable and universally accessible tourism. The two websites www.sdrtv.com and www.da-grape-vine.com saw it fit to use this platform to showcase the talented musicians from both these countries. The UNWTO 2013 Mixtape was launched on the 24th of August at the official opening of the 5 day UN General assembly with hard copies being distributed for FREE whilst FREE downloads were also available online.
When asked about how this whole idea came into fruition Duncan Sodala one of the organizers from SDRTV (Zambia) said, “Slam Dunk Records TV and Da Grapevine TV saw it fit to share with the rest of the world our culture through music, tackling various topics and vices in both societies. This Mixtape is the first of its kind and will serve as an outlet for Zambian and Zimbabwean youth to voice their opinions and stories of today’s happenings”.
For more than two months prior the release the organizers Naboth Rimayi of Da Grapevine TV and Duncan Sodala of Slam Dunk Records TV advertised in their respective countries for artists to send in their contributions which were to be in line with promoting were you are from amongst other things. 8 Zimbabwean songs and 8 Zambian songs were then shortlisted for the Mixtape. The result is a colourful Mixtape from countries that both have a rich history and share a world heritage site, namely the Victoria Falls which is the biggest waterfalls in the world. The Mixtape is a great opportunity not only for tourists to experience the sites but also the versatile and diverse sounds that exist in both lands. The assembly had up to 4 000 participants that are expected to attend from the 180 member countries, making this one of the most prestigious events of the year.
