More from the better than (critical) psychology department...

Today John Walkenbach mentioned Afri-Can guitars from South Africa on his popular J-Walk blog, saying that he's probably going to buy one. They sound good, are sort-of environmentally friendly (being partly made from old oil cans and all), and are being sold for up to $525 (that's R3000 plus) in the US. The website that sells them has a "hall of fame" where all the artists have surnames except for Vusi Mahlasela, who is billed simply as "South African Artist Vusi". Not sure why that is. But they do have nice free sample mp3s of people playing Afri-Can guitars. So rush over, take a listen, and get your very own guitar now. Or if you don't have that kind of money listen to short samples of Vusi Mahlasela's songs over at Calabash Music and buy a CD for only $15 or so.
