Tour to Tanzania April 2009

In collaboration with the renowned Tanzanian choir Upendo, Ishirini gave concerts in Dar es Salaam and in the Lushoto area of the Usambara Mountains, performing alongside local choirs and leading workshops with village schools.


For the members of Ishirini, this was a trip of a lifetime, a chance to experience the Tanzanian way of life and an opportunity to interact with singers and musicians from a different tradition.


Time after time, we were overwhelmed by the generosity of the Tanzanian people, the incredible reactions of audiences to western music, the fascination with which we were greeted and the huge warmth and enthusiasm, and demand for further partnership that we encountered at every turn.
