Msafiri Zawose ~ Traditional Gogo Music

Related Post

“Charismatic gogo scion Msafiri Zawose is widening cycles of tradition, honoring and expanding the pioneering work of his father, musical icon Hukwe. “There is something truly magical about this sound” from Central Tanzania (WFMU). With its buzzy, bowed zezes, tempered limbas(thumb pianos), xylophones, and tuned ngomas (drums), topped by outstanding vocals, Msafiri’s band pitches to the edges of a groove before turning for home. “Zawose fuses the musical traditions of his ancestors with a modern twist to create a sound that truly embodies today’s African experience.” (The Citizen, TZ)
