Launched at Nafasi in May 2016, Wikiendi Live! is a unique and vibrant live music event dedicated to showcasing traditional African beats and fusion. The platform features artists from around Tanzania and Zanzibar, as well as visiting regional and international artists who bring opportunities for inspiration and exchange.
Wikiendi Live! programmes artists who are willing to break from mainstream expectations by tapping into deep sources of heritage or experimenting with new forms of expression, or do both at the same time.
The platform seeks to develop audiences who are adventurous in their tastes and interested in expanding their musical horizons by being exposed to live music that excites, inspires, and revives enthusiasm for East Africa’s rich musical heritage.
If you are interested to create art with the audience, or if you want to perform during Wikiendi Live!, please contact us with your proposal via e-mail.
Wikiendi Live! is presented in partnership with the Tanzania Heritage Project.
