Frank Gunderson, associate professor of ethnomusicology at Florida State University, discusses how Radio Tanzania invested in song composition and censorship from 1973–1993. Two different songs entitled “Nelson Mandela,” now considered examples of zilipendwa (golden oldies), express a revolutionary sentiment that addresses workers and party leaders alike.
