    Vitali Maembe is a well-respected Tanzanian artist, guitar player and singer-songwriter, known for his original music that is universal yet distinctly Tanzanian. He was born in Sumbawanga, grew up in Dar es Salaam, and graduated at Bagamoyo College of Arts.

    His music combines inland and coastal rhythms, with poetic and provocative lyrics. As for his music involvement, Vitali Maembe's focus is on awakening society, with lyrics calling corrupt leaders to account and provoking discussions to lead people to find their own solutions to pressing issues of the day.
