about

In this latest Album by Msafiri Zawose & his Musical Friends from Tanzania he made a big progress on his journey towards successfully fusing his & his fathers original ancient Wagogo style of music with modern sounds & rhythms, thus in-fusing us with the natural joy & exuberance of living in a deeply musical family & community close to the very heart of nature.

Along with the traditional Instruments, Piano & Rock- or Jazz-style Drums & Guitars can be heard here, as well as more electronically generated sounds. Many of the tracks are inviting to dance while a few show some exceptional vocal harmony. All together a real treat!


Msafiri Zawose is one of the most admired Gogo musicians alive today. His father, the late Hukwe Zawose was a musical giant, an influential figure in post-independence Tanzania, a master musician and one of the most mesmerizing performers ever seen. Msafiri is determined to honour and preserve his family’s rich musical heritage. Gogo music, originating in Central Tanzania, derives its unique sound from the mixture of the traditional instruments and vocal harmonies. Msafiri has mastered a wide variety of instruments from marimba (balafon), zeze (two-stringed violin), ilimba (pentatonically tuned thumb piano) and ngoma (traditional drums). He has a transient voice spanning a wide range of styles and sounds, transporting his listeners to a different world. Msafiri has established himself as a positive musical force within Tanzania, preserving tradition, but with a modern twist. He has maintained close ties to his traditional Gogo roots, whilst creating a new and exciting energy that is contagious to anyone who hears it.
