East Africa’s leading music festival Sauti Za Busara has announced the line-up for the 2017 edition, which will be held between 9 and 12 February 2017 in Zanzibar. The line-up presents a diverse selection from around the continent and the diaspora and includes 25 acts from within East Africa.
For many of the artists, this will be their debut performance at the festival and in East Africa. The line-up includes:
Moroccan roots-reggae superstars Bob Maghreb, who reinterpret Bob Marley classics with fresh North African flavours
Roland Tchakounté, a rocking African blues musician from Cameroon (now based in France)
Kyekyeku, a young, conscious Ghanaian singer-songwriter taking traditional palm wine and highlife music to new directions.
