Festival of the Dhow Counties

Until the end of the month, Zanzibar hosts the annual Festival of the Dhow Countries and Zanzibar International Film Festival. Free music in the park. Just like being in London in the summer. Lots of people sitting around listening to music on a sunny afternoon. Here Sidi Goma set up. They are musicians from an African Sufi community which has been based in Gujurat, India for hundreds of years, but kept the African musical tradition… Excellent.
