Tanzania



In 2007 former solo artist Karume Shaabani, also known as Father K, joined together with keyboardist Ali Said to create Cross Border. From 2009 onwards the band of nine has been performing a huge mix of well loved rhythms from the Tanzanian coastal region, such as msondo, kibati, umundi, msewe, chakacha and mduara. Their sets also include well loved rumba tunes, hot zouk numbers and ample reggae hits too, with the aim to get everyone on their feet dancing.
