Daniel Künzler is a sociologist at the University of Fribourg and has written about different forms of popular culture (rap music, video films, football). He collects African rap music and bothers his friends travelling to Africa with shopping lists. Daniel recommends smaller towns in border areas, not only because you can find music from neighbouring countries there, but also because in smaller towns, you still might find those outdated tapes and CDs long gone in the capital city. He is not sure how to cope with the fact that increasingly music shops are reduced to a computer and all you bring home is some mp3 on a data stick. His blood pressure rises when people want to talk with him about world music.
