Safar is an Arabic word which translates as a journey. DCMA Zanzibar's Safar is a group that reflects the diversity of musical styles found in the context of the Dhow Countries. Afrobeat, ngoma, taarab and Arabic music are blended in a special experience without dominating one another. The musicians are open-minded and accept any influence from East or West for the sake of pure art. All musicians of Safar are teachers at DCMA and great ambassadors for the idea behind the Dhow Countries Music Academy.
