“For those who have been waiting for music to roll back the years and reminisce about the good old days or appreciate music which resonates with the soul, this is your day. It will be an evening of Zaggamusik, Jiti with hints of Afro-Township jazz,” he said.

Tanga WekwaSando who gained popularity with Mahobho in 1995 and after releasing his debut album ‘WAKE’ in 2000 and continued to grow exponentially.

Born on the 1st of August in 1954 and Tanga grew up in the suburb of Highfield in Harare and his musical journey started way before Zimbabwe gained its independence around the 1970s where he played the tambourine and the saxophone for the Salvation Army youth band.

His latest offering ZAGGA, a contemporary afro-beat is derived from traditional & cultural MHANDE and JITI dance music.
