Sauti za Busara 2022: Amplifying Women’s Voices
Annually in February, Sauti za Busara offers a magical experience in Zanzibar for people from across the world to celebrate a rich and diverse programme of African music, 100% live. The 19th edition will rock the walls of Stone Town during 11th - 13th February 2022, with the theme ‘Paza Sauti: Amplifying Women’s Voices’.
We are excited to announce the first round of artists, with more to be added in the coming days. Also the festival offers music industry presentations, workshops and Movers & Shakers networking meetings.
The festival is organised by Busara Promotions, a non-profit NGO registered in Zanzibar. We are closely monitoring the global pandemic situation, with our first priority being the health and well-being of visitors and locals. Additional safety measures will be in place to ensure the Sauti za Busara 2022 experience exceeds even your wildest expectations.
