African Podcast

A little humble creation I put together about our African leg of the trip:





Playlist:
  • Joni Haastrup - Free My People (Nigeria)
  • Nakodje - Nana (Senegal)
  • L'Orchestre Kanaga de Mopti - Gambari (Mali)
  • El Rego - Vimado Wingnan (Benin)
  • Manu Dibango - Soul Makossa (Cameroon)
  • Tinariwen - Cler Achel (Mali/Libya)
  • Sintayehu Tilahunn - Hibongo Hadiya (Ethiopia)
  • Djali Madi Tounkara et le Rail Band du Mali - Djiguiya (Mali)



Two disclaimers:
1. Excuse my horrible English that I'm not fluent in
2. Video conversion massively degrades the still pictures quality, especially those "pixelated" shadows (dunno why, "HD" helps a little)


Cheers,
Margus

Music

Tsiklonaut- It would be great if you could make a playlist of your favorite African music. I would love to hear some new music. Is there anyway you could just send the audio of the video or post a playlist? I dont really have means to get/dont know whats out there as far as African music goes and since you have a really good taste in music, LIFE and photography i know you got some gems in your collection.
Thats of course if it isnt too much of a hassle.....

Awesome stuff as always. And yes, i got my adv bike because of your report.
Big thanks!!

David

Margus, You are an amazing photojournalist and audiophile. This is without a doubt one of the best adventure travel 'blogs' out there. I have gotten quite an education following your posts and love the way you weave, photography, music and words (written & spoken).

For the complete set of my afro favourites I'd probably need days to think and write about and taste is such a subjective and a changing thing. For this podcast it goes like this:
  • Joni Haastrup - Free My People (Nigeria)
  • Nakodje - Nana (Senegal)
  • L'Orchestre Kanaga de Mopti - Gambari (Mali)
  • El Rego - Vimado Wingnan (Benin)
  • Manu Dibango - Soul Makossa (Cameroon)
  • Tinariwen - Cler Achel (Mali/Libya)
  • Sintayehu Tilahunn - Hibongo Hadiya (Ethiopia)
  • Djali Madi Tounkara et le Rail Band du Mali - Djiguiya (Mali)

Jobs are messing up many other things we'd like to do, but we're slowly pulling it together: we're in the finishing up stage of the raw materials for the book now. Need to sort through it and make it into single piece of connected story worthy of a book. Lets see where it goes from here.


Safe roads,
Margus

I can't wait to be able to buy your book.
And I am sure I am not the only one.

I just hope that sometime during this lifetime I can get to Estonia to meet you guys in person!
And if that happens, I will definitely get there by bike!

Best!

Thumb Book and DVD

That was a great podcast. A book with an accompanying DVD would be great.

You are very talented and don't apologize for your English.

Thanks for all the time you've put into this.

Many thanks

Just finished your thread.

What a wonderful experience.

I agree that returning home is done with new eyes, as well as a more open mind :)

You clearly have enormous patience to cope with the obstacles that your trip threw your way.

How do you follow up an epic like that?

By the way, is the 21" front worth the trouble for it's dirt performance? In particular, soft sand?

Would Karinna go again?

Did Karinna ever ride the bike?

High regard,
Jim.

You two have been an inspiration to many of us lurkers on here. I just got finished reading your entire adventure. It took the better part of a week and I did not read every post. All I can say is WOW. I think a book is just a first step for you two. You should also put all this on a DVD and sell that as a documentary. You could also sell it to other potential RTW riders. Have you contacted National Geographic? I am sure they might want some of your photos and stories. They are certainly worthy of National Geographic. Congratulations on such a HUGH accomplishment. I hope life does not get too boring for both of you now. My daughter is 6 now and I plan on having her read this adventure when she gets old enough to read it. I think your story is a great educational tool for all ages. It really makes the unknown parts of the world come alive.

I've been following your travels for over a year now and was sad when your journey came to an end. I'm glad I've been checking in now and then to see what's new in your thread. Thanks so much for taking the time to produce the podcast. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'll keep checking in to see if a second one is forthcoming.

Take care, Wayne

Thank you very much, Marcus.
Thank you.
