Country Zanzibar Genres hiphop pop urban Festival Sauti za Busara 2006
A big hit with Zanzibari teenagers and youth, this group will fill the dancefloor of any local disco.
4 Nature is another in the series of young artists performing Zanzibar Hip Hop popularly known as Zenji Flavour. The group consists of 4 artists, namely Sadiq aka General, Abbas aka 100%, Abbas 2 aka Lil' C and Jamshid aka M.K.
4 Nature was formed in 2002 and has so far recorded three singles: Tufurahi, Imejaa, and U-brotherman. With several local concert performances to their credit, the group also represented Zanzibar in the 2004 regional Music Crossroads competitions in Dar es Salaam.
"We intend to pursue a different direction by making a kind of hiphop that has more local flavour by introducing more local instruments to create a truly original Zenji Flavour" says the group's spokesman Sadiq.
The group is currently rehearsing with music students from Dhow Countries Music Academy (DCMA) as a starting point in their new directions.
