Country Zanzibar Genres roots traditional Festival Sauti za Busara 2009
Zinduka Ngoma is an original traditional drum and dance group from Nungwi village on the northern tip of Unguja island (Zanzibar).When they perform, local people as well as international visitors always greatly enjoy the spectacle, and often join in.
Originally, Zinduka shows evolved out of celebrations for the times of harvesting. Other times the drummers were called to celebrate weddings, or the launching of a newly-built dhow to sea. The music would continue long into the night, even without alcohol. For the people of the village, the music itself was enough to keep them high.
These days the group is more often called for the launching of a new tourist hotel. People in Nungwi like to celebrate, and these occasions provide a rare opportunity to be with international visitors to laugh, dance together and share stories.
