Support from Roskilde Funds

I got some great news recently from the Roskilde Festival, they have selected Makkum Records as one of the initiatives they want to support. This directly means I can release the Atamina album on vinyl! And I started working on a new compilation of music from the North East region of Ghana. I am going there soon! Thank you very much Roskilde Festival and TAK also Peter Hvalkhof, always, for doing great things.
