He also set a radio template: majestic, with flourishes meant to read as 'exotic,' and lyrics meant to change lives.
Gabriel said:. The first time I really got into music from another culture was as a result of the shifting of Radio 4 , which I used to wake up to. I'd lost it on medium wave and was groping around in the morning on the dial, trying to find something that I could listen to, and came across a Dutch radio station who were playing the soundtrack from some obscure Stanley Baker movie called Dingaka. That had quite a lot of stuff from — I think it was — Ghana.
I can't remember now, but it really moved me. One of the songs I heard on that was a thing called 'Shosholoza', which I recorded on the b-side of the ' Biko ' single.
