Greetings from Zanzibar!
We are just eight weeks away from unwrapping the SIXTH edition of the Sauti za Busara music festival.
After months of searching and selecting, we are confident that we have put together one of the finest music programmes yet. All you have to do is make sure you are in Zanzibar, 12-17 February 2009.
Sauti za Busara (Sounds of Wisdom) is an international festival featuring top-quality musical performances by more than 400 established and upcoming artists (40 groups in total). In six "short" years it has established itself as one of Africa’s leading music festivals. It’s an event that brings people together, under African skies, in appreciation of the rich variety of music from the region.
It takes place in an historic open-air fortress on a beautiful tropical island and admission is free to all each day before sunset. Too good to be true? - make sure you don't miss it.
