    The Islanders Band is a group of nine talented musicians from Tanzania that was formed in 1997 in Stone Town, Zanzibar. The music of Islanders Band is a rooted fusion of traditional Tanzania rhythms with contemporary sounds.

     

    "Our music is aimed to entertain, as well as addressing different social messages, knowing that music is a very powerful medium of communication, which reaches people of all ages, nationalities and cultural backgrounds," says Christopher Kamwelwe the bandleader.
