Africa: Gift Music CDs Issue

AfricaFocus Bulletin
Dec 5, 2008 (081205)
(Reposted from sources cited below)

Editor's Note

Looking for gifts that are not too expensive, but still attractive, enjoyable, and perhaps even educational as well? Last week AfricaFocus Bulletin highlighted 15 photography, art, and children's books. If you haven't yet taken a look, you can check them out at http://www.africafocus.org/books/gifts08a.php This week we focus on music CDs, featuring the top 10 of the year from Afropop and more. Just click on the links in this issue, or to view all the images, just go directly to http://www.africafocus.org/books/gifts08b.php

Click on the links below each CD, or go to Amazon.com Amazon.ca, or Amazon UK. And if you purchase any item after entering the Amazon site from a link on AfricaFocus, AfricaFocus receives a small referral fee at no extra cost to you.

I'll be adding additional pages with more gift suggestions in coming days and weeks, so keep checking back for your last-minute gifts as well. And if there are books (or music cds) you want to suggest as good choices, just send me the details at africafocus@igc.org, and I'll try to add them in promptly. And, of course, if you want to suggest to a friend or relative a gift you would like to receive, do refer them to the AfricaFocus Bookshop.
