Zamangwa (born Moses Zamangwa) is a Tanzanian saxophonist based in Dar es Salaam.

Zamangwa began music as a guitarist in 2010. He switched to saxophone and currently specialised in the alto saxophone. Zamangwa plays Afro-jazz, gospel, Tanzanian traditional music, soft rock and Latin. He also fuses jazz with mganda, chihoda lizombe, ligambusa, lindeku and kingwangwa.

In 2015, Zamangwa released an album titled 'Yote Kwa Yesu' (All To Jesus). The album did well on the local Christian music market. 'Yote Kwa Yesu', a song off the same album, became more popular among local Christian congregations.

As of 2019, Zamangwa finished working on his second album 'Afrika Yetu' (Our Africa). The album is a collection of his compositions that seek to revive African traditional music. The album also fuses jazz and its lyrical content tells stories of Tanzania's forgotten culture.

He has worked as a saxophonist at German company Mother Africa and with France's Cirque Phenix.
