Sauda and her band will be performing on the Sauti za Busara stage in the amazing Ngome Kongwe (Old Fort) in Stonetown, Zanzibar, Tanzania. Come February 2011, she will be joining the incredible line-up of musicians who have traversed this stage in years past. To see Sauda's bio on the SzB site click here: SZB Artist Profile: Sauda
Don't forget to roam around the site some more to find out about all the other amazing artists who will be performing there.
We are excited to quote from the SzB site:
"...(I)n recent years Sauda decisively began to take her music into a new direction, mixing jazz with more traditional sounds of Tanzania. This progression can be heard on her latest CD, “Sauti ya Sauda” which was released at the end of 2009. Excitingly she crosses between Swahili and English lyrics, mixing together jazz, reggae, spoken word creating a new unique Tanzanian sound."
