The music festival in Dar es Salaam presents traditional and contemporary music with the aim of keeping alive local music traditions in and outside the country. Every June, more than 100 performers take to the stage at the Mzalendo Halisi Music Festival to perform traditional Tanzanian music and dance, with performances every evening. During the day there is a cultural market to enjoy as well as art exhibitions. Tourists will also get the chance to buy traditional produce.
The participants in the festival look to Tanzanian history and culture to provide them with inspiration, with dances and music from across the tribes of Tanzania used in composing their acts.
