    Dhow Crossing

    The "Dhow Crossing" CD is a result of a three-year collaboration between students and teachers of Dhow Countries Music Academy (DCMA Zanzibar) and Agder University College (Norway). The musical crossover project was part of a NORAD funded programme. Recordings and concerts evolved through exchange visits between both institutions and countries. The result is a new musical landscape that has merged traditional Zanzibari taarab, Norwegian folk and western popular music - perfectly fused without changing the wonderful laidback character of the music. The CD is available for sale at DCMA and other local retailers in Zanzibar and distributed internationally by Kultur & Spetakkel.
