Msafiri Zawose

Bio

Anyone who has collected the best and most moving recordings of traditional African music will know the name Zawose. Hukwe Zawose (1938-2003) was an influential figure in post-independence Tanzania, appearing regularly on stage at WOMAD and other major world music festivals in Europe, Japan, North America and elsewhere, and recording many times at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios in the UK.

Msafiri Zawose continues his father's legacy in playing traditional Gogo music. He continues to collaborate regularly with other musicians, cross-pollinating whilst remaining firmly in touch with the elements of the music that give it its unique sound. Msafiri has traveled to Europe, America, Asia, Middle East, and around East Africa playing traditional music.

He has mastered a wide variety of instruments from marimba (balafon), zeze (Gogo two-stringed violin), ilimba (pentatonically tuned thumb piano) and ngoma (traditional drums). He has a transient voice spanning a wide range of styles and sounds, transporting his listeners to a different world. In 2013 he released the album 'Mbotela'. Picture credit: Issa Michuzi.
