Msafiri Zawose
Idag är han en av de främsta inom Tanzanias gogomusik. Men Msafiri Zawose blev professionell musiker redan vid tolv års ålder, då han började turnera i stora delar av landet. Hans far Hukwe Zawose var en gigant inom tanzanisk musik som bland annat samarbetade med Peter Gabriel. Det var av honom som Msafiri lärde sig att spela, men också att bygga de instrument som hör till den traditionella gogomusiken: stränginstrumentet zeze och tumpianot ilimba till exempel – tillsammans med den flerstämmiga sången är de typiska för gogosoundet. Den här musiken och dansen är enormt viktiga delar av vardagslivet i hembyn Bagamoyo, och Msafiri gör ett passionerat arbete med att föra dem vidare in i framtiden. Rötter och känsla är viktigast för honom, men han låter sin musik också mötas med moderna stilar, bland annat i det organiskt-elektroniska hybridgogoalbumet Uhamiaji, släppt på brittiska Soundway.

Msafiri Zawose (ENG)
Today he is one of the most distinguished practicioners of Tanzania's traditional gogo music, but his career as a professional musician began long ago—Msafiri Zawose began touring across large parts of the country already as a twelve year-old. His father Hukwe Zawose was a giant in Tanzanian music, collaborating with the likes of Peter Gabriel. It was he who taught Msafiri to play, but also to build the instruments crucial to gogo music. For example, the string instrument zeze and the thumb piano ilimba, which, along with polyphonic singing, are typical elements of the gogo sound. The music and dance are hugely important parts of everyday life in Msafiri’s hometown Bagamoyo, and he works passionately to keep them alive for future generations. Expressing his roots and emotions is what matters most to him, but he also allows his music to combine with modern styles, including an organic-electronic hybrid gogo album called Uhamiaji, released on British Soundway.

Çaykh is the dj moniker of berlin-based and hamburg-born Nicolas Sheikholeslami who is
also a member of the live & recording projects “Circuit Diagram“
and “Spiritczualic Enhancement Center“. Eclectic are his musical interests and so are his dj-sets & radio shows. Researches
that than turned mixes covered regions like Turkey, Ethiopia, Indonesia, South Africa, Sudan and Somalia. The latter research resulted in a teaming up with New York’s “Ostinato Records“ to co-produce the compilation “Sweet As Broken Dates - Lost Somali Tapes From The Horn Of Africa“, which recieved a nomination for best historical album at “Grammy Awards“ 2018. Besides mixes and sets based on the region of it’s origin Çaykh also likes to play sets of music that tend to rather concentrate on a certain red thread or attribute that he senses in the selected music, regardless of it being spiritual Jazz, modular synth freak outs, or so-called traditional music from any region of the world.

For later this year his first 3-track solo vinyl release is scheduled on Manchester’s “Natural Sciences“ label.
