Msafiri Zawose has managed to make Gogo music attractive to international audiences.
A full decade into the career of Msafiri Zawose, he remains the chief ambassador of re-invented music tradition of the nomadic tribe of Wagogo from central Tanzania, whom Msafiri’s proudly represents – just like his father Hukwe Zawose, an accomplished artist who also managed to work with the Real World family.
The great thing about Msafiri is that without losing any of the core elements of this tradition, he’s managed to make Gogo music attractive to international audiences.
Just take a look at comments under his YouTube videos and you’ll see excitement coming from countries as far as Mexico, Vietnam or Poland.
