Scents and Sounds of East Africa and Beyond

Saturday 19th September

This workshop offers a unique opportunity to explore the spice and mystery of Zanzibar and engage in a lively musical and cultural experience that includes storytelling, Swahili poetry, music making and performing. Music will draw on the traditional heritage of rhythm and melody from the Swahili coast and there will be an exhibition of ‘Kanga-Leso’ – a cloth that means more than gold to Zanzibar women.
