Tanzania: Afropop in Tanzania Blog – Second Dispatch (2/8/23)
Written by ABR on 09/02/2023
[Afropop] From Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, this is dispatch number two, and the beat goes on! We have enjoyed and recorded several more bands including the awesome Msondo Music Band, founded in 1964. That makes this the oldest continuously running band in Tanzania, and perhaps in Africa. They perform five nights a week at various venues around Dar. Their sound is ecstatic: featuring five male vocalists harmonizing in Swahili, two guitarists, two trumpet players, drums and bass. No playback needed, thank you!
