This particular album was not planned in our advance agenda-. it seemed like a good idea to do at the time (and my opinion has yet to change). If you listen carefully in the background, you can hear birds, wind, leaves and vehicles, other sounds of Zanzibar. In a way, this selection of music captures an earlier spirit of taarab, that of the small groups who would play in people's houses-. and also that spirit of friendship, entertainment and musical pleasure. Music downloads should be returned to us via the e-mail address above including a copy of your notification.
