Some of our Africa overland trips departing Nairobi in January and February 2013 will be in Zanzibar for the Sauti za Busara music festival!
“It’s February, it’s humid and the sun is shining. The Indian Ocean waves gently lap the dazzling white sands. You remove your sandals to feel the sand between your toes. The breeze is gentle, bringing hints of cinnamon, vanilla and cloves. You look forward to fresh seafood for dinner. What will it be today, lobster or prawns, pilipili perch or grilled marlin? Then a short stroll through Stone Town leads you to the Old Fort, home of the world’s most amazing African music festival…”
How can you not want to go after reading that! Here’s what else the music festival’s organisers have to say:
“Sauti za Busara brings people together in celebration of the richness and variety of African music. Centred within the ancient walls of Zanzibar’s Old Fort, the main stage hosts hundreds of musicians and performers from all over Africa. An open air cinema in the adjacent amphitheatre screens music films from the African Continent and diaspora. Meanwhile throughout town, Zanzibar plays host to a variety of fringe events, aka Busara Xtra”.
