There was a library label based in South Africa, called "Music From Africa".

To date there are 4 known releases:
MF 001 - Swazi Message - Idlozi
MF 003 - Big Band Bash ‎ Township Jive
MF 005 - Sotho Chant ‎ Traditional Rural Music
MF 007 - Mothotlung Boys Choir ‎ Sotho/Tswana (Unaccompanied)

"South African library music from the early 80s. They were recorded and produced by Johannesburg musician/producer Tom Mkhize and released then on vinyl only to be sent to TV and radio stations, as well as cinema productions (never commercially available)."

Blimey, that's a brilliant find! I'll see if I can find any more info and make a thread on these.

edit: The thread is up. I think I've identified all of the remaining releases.

It should be added to these lists in Zvukobaza from Russia.
BMRU series starts from 1 and goes up to 307.
Especially 'BMRU 040 - Sansara' is top important.
