Dhow Countries Music Academy, Zanzibar Reviews

  • We had the luck to be in Zanzibar on a Thursday night. This day they have a concert (10.000 chillings entry) in the last floor of the building. The music was just amazing, and you could see how passionate the musicians were. Is a rather small room so the concert was quite private. It was definitely one of the best things of my trip to Zanzibar and I would recommend checking their program for other concerts.

  • Probably the most beautiful music school in the world, filled with passionate people.

  • The best in Oriental music
