Annakattoa

Bio

AnnaKattoa is currently one of the most admired Tanzanian Afro-fusion /Traditional musician today. Born into a family that honors tradition, he is determined to preserve this style of music that plays a key role in the rich heritage of Tanzania. “Sweta” music allows for expression of emotion and serves a number of roles in traditional life, ranging from specific songs to celebrate the harvest, to serving as entertainment for the Community. Sweta music, originating in Lake Zone of Tanzania, derives its unique sound from the mixture of the Traditional instruments, and the incorporation of multiple vocalists. The primary instruments heard in Sweta music include the zeze, ngoma, limba, filimbi, and nyanga. Annakattoa has been able to maintain close ties to this traditional style of music, while making herself known to a new generation of African musician playing irimba Pure traditiobal instrument and ability to make African moves on her stage present. Her influence is felt through his song writing, original compositions and vocal styles. While interacting with different musicians Anna has been able to work alongside many other musicians to create fusions with a variety of different styles and traditions.
