Asilia Taarab Concert @ Dhow Countries Music Academy
Jan 24 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Asilia Taarab Concert @ Dhow Countries Music Academy | Zanzibar | Zanzibar Urban/West Region | Tanzania

Like much of the islands culture, the music of Zanzibar is mosaic of different influences and style, borrowed from all over the Indian Ocean and beyond. The best example for this creative blending of traditions is Taarab music, the national sound of the Islands. Taarab music has flourished since the first decades of the 20th century, becoming the region’s first mass mediated music. Drawing in influences from the Arab world, India, Indonesia and the West, Taarab blended these with the classical traditions of Swahili poetry, local rythms and melody.

You can hear all of these every Thursday at DCMA.

Midundo ya Ngoma: Rythms of traditional Zanzibari ngoma @ Dhow Countries Music Academy
Jan 30 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am
Midundo ya Ngoma: Rythms of traditional Zanzibari ngoma @ Dhow Countries Music Academy

Ngoma literally translated means ‘drum’ and is a term used to encompass all local traditional forms of dancing, drumming and singing. There  are literally hundreds of different ngoma styles throughout Tanzania, variations often being so slight that untrained eyes and ears can hardly notice the difference. A number of these originate from Zanzibar and Pemba and all are spectacular to watch.

Kilundo International group is led by Zanzibar’s drumming legend – MzeeKheri,  our ngoma drums teacher. He knows the rhythms of around 25 tribes of Tanzania: the fantastic world of music for celebrations, rituals, for sadness and joy.
