Maisha Kitendawili (2001)
Usia wa Baba (2003)
Formed in 1999, descended as a splinter group from the "African Beat" and "African Stars" Bands (Twanga Pepeta). The popularity of the African Revolution Band started when they were resident band at Hotel 77 in Arusha, and developed the "Chumvi Chumvi" dancing style. In January 2000 the band returned to Dar es Salaam, where they played weekly at venues including Gerezani Railway Club, Leaders Club and Bahari Beach Hotel. Under the direction of their then band leader, Muumini Mwijuma, who devised the massively popular "Tam Tam" style, the group released the chart topping "Maisha Kitendawili" album, and continue to grow ever more popular.
