    Loving the series, I'm so happy the filmed it in Gabarone, it really caputres the flavour of Botswana. I think this will be a wonderful draw for tourists to this incredible country. I'm wondering if anyone knows the song that is in the opening credits, it sounds like Oh Botswana, perhaps by Jill herself? Thanks so much, Rob

    Botswana wa Tsabakela is by Mogwana, a community-oriented music / dance troupe from Gabarone, Botswana. Atypically for Botswana, they do have a website: http://www.geocities.com/mogwana_artistes - so maybe you could inquire there. By the way, there has been talk of a soundtrack from the TV show - missed opportunity so far; hopefully it will happen! Also, if anyone's curious: I did play a few other songs by Botswana artists heard on the television show on my radio show this week, http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/shows/31390. And I did a public radio piece on the show's Gabarone-based music producer Solo B. here: http://www.studio360.org/episodes/2009/05/08. (If you want more help finding this music contact me here: http://wfmu.org/email.php?id=70&return=/mailus.php.)
