    Tarbia

    Tarbia group was founded in Zanzibar in 1985. They are based at a local madrasa where they practice qasida (Islamic praise music) using dufu (hand-held frame drum) and other drums. They are highly respected among the island's Muslim community for their singing and melodies. The group performs at religious as well as state functions, inside as well as out of the country. Recently, the group recorded a highly-moving track in collaboration with Rajab Suleiman, the qanun player of Culture Musical Club. This is the group's first time to perform on stage at an international festival.
