Showtime in the Sahara – Update

Back in June I posted an article called "African Adventure" about a tremendous Adventure Travel article that appeared in the Africa issue of Vanity Fair – you can jump down and read that post if you like it’s Here ,but at the time, the article was not up on the VF website, (or I couldn’t find it) but it’s there now.

Seriously, it’s such a cool story – you have to go read it.  I bought the music collection "Tracks in the Sand" which was compiled by Youssou N’Dour as an introduction to West African music for those of us who are not West African, and am listening to it tonight as I composed this post.  It’s like an expert mix tape – and ALL revenue not some bogus "net proceeds"  – goes to the Global Fund.

This song, "Senegal Fast Food" by Amadou and Mariam (featuring Manu Chao) is from the collection. I can’t stop listening to it. Just click on the link below to listen or download – then go buy your own copy of the entire "Tracks in the Sand" Collection via itunes and support the Global Fund. Amadou and Mariam are a blind couple from Mali and Manu Chao produced their most recent album and wrote and sings this song.

If you don’t have that sense of uniqueness or give customers what they want, you are going to struggle. You have to be adaptable and understand your customer. It’s a tough world out there.”
