Wahapahapa Band is a group of six musicians from Tanzania looking to boldly take their distinct sound to the rest of the world and offer a taste of the richness of the language and the life experience of the Swahili people.
Wahapahapa means ‘originates from here’ in Swahili. Their music is a unique blend of homegrown music inspired by diverse Swahili traditions and influences of contemporary world music. They have held successful concerts in Tanzania and outside the country in collaboration with many local and international artists.
Wahapahapa’s motto is: Good music, good life; harmony begins at home.
