Compiled & mixed by Stan Rijven
Stan Rijven is a popjournalist who ao worked for the national Dutch newspaper Trouw (1979-2014). During the 80s he was a regular dj at squad Radio 100 (Tam Tam International) and hosted for 2 years the VPRO Radio 3 program The World Receiver/ Mundial (1989/90).
Mid 80s he co-founded the magazine Afrika. Combined with his Radio 100-program Stan organised the monthly held Tam Tam Club at Cafe De Pieter in Amsterdam which became a well known spot to hear the latest African pop and World music. At the same time Stan was busy establishing IASPM-Benelux, a global music platform for the Benelux (Paradiso, march 1984). Hence the name IASPM, International Association for the Study of Popular Music. To encourage the ± 40 Benelux members to pay their annual membership fee, Stan compiled this tape Globeat in 1989 as a present. Very rudimentary mixed with one turntable and one double casssettedeck, mixing was purely by feel, without a mixing desk.
Globeat is constructed with a radio-show in mind, covering parts of Africa and some unexpected contributions from Latin-America, the USA and the Netherlands as well.

Great collection! I enjoyed every bit of it. Pedro Padrilla Aquinaldo is a discovery! I also especially like Baobab. These old Senegal bands (like Djamano, Star Band, Etoile de Dakar etc.) are always nice to hear. Leo Fuld is a surprise.Is he from Rumania originally? “Doina” means song in Romanian, but is also a women’s name.
Doina is a Romanian sad song.
Global audio archaeology at it’s best – great post 😉
