    Mopao Swahili Jazz blend original jazz songs with rhythms from various African music traditions. Emma Mopao, a Tanzanian musician and guitar wizard founded the group to pioneer new directions for Swahili jazz. Initially influenced by the American jazz canon, the band has pioneered its song-writing and music arrangements, resulting in a unique blend of original compositions combining modern contemporary jazz and funk with traditional Tanzanian rhythms and melodies.

    Mopao Swahili Jazz released their first album Taswira (Reaction) in 2019. They have performed locally and in Denmark and Kenya.
