Music is life for all of us. This we hear every time and every day, in all our lives. I would like to bring together my artistic brothers and sisters from all over the world I have musical experiences from all over the world. I’ve played with Juwata, Mlimani Park, Kilimanjaro Band (All of the three played Afrobeat), Tatunane (Tanzanian roots music), Brazz brothers (Norwegian funk jazz), “One Song & Bo Stief” (Danish Fusion Jazz) and Kagebushi Teater Company (Japan) Tatunane won the Radio France International Prix Decouvert in 1991 for their eminent og original style. When we toured japan, we had Yoshiki Yamashita (Japanese piano player), Shasubi Watanabe (jazzguitar), Heite Shihayashi (Taiko drums) appearing as guest stars in our show. I recorded the CD Afrobrazz with the Brazz brothers in 1993. Later they went to play with famed danish songwriter Poul Dissing. One song only made one Cd, suprisingly named One Song, even though it contained 6 tunes. Besides this I have been touring in Netherland, Germany, France, Benin (where I met Angelique Kidjo), Canada, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Japan with varius acts. My musicial profiency and spirit I achieved by studies at Bagamoyo College Of Music And Art in Tanzania, my beloved home country.
