Mcharuko Band

Mcharuko is a young and talented band of students from Dhow Countries Music Academy, Zanzibar .  They are a vibrant and upbeat band, as their name in Swahili suggests, playing different genres of music such as pop, afro-beat, bongo flava and fusion.

The band formed in 2015 to perform regular free live concerts at the Forodhani Gardens and other open spaces around Zanzibar Town.

An energetic cocktail of African popular music styles, Mcharuko is led by mesmerizing Christopher Anthony performing on jazz flute, guitar, drums and vocal.
