With unique instrumentation – including Violin, Qanun & Oud – Siti & The Band is carrying the torch of classical Zanzibari music by giving new life to the traditional sounds.
During the creative process great care was taken to not change or replace but merge the different cultures that are very close to their common African origin. Their first album, “Fusing the Roots” is recorded evidence of the timelessness of Zanzibar’s traditional and contemporary music. The high quality recording, empow- ering lyrics and unique musical compositions of the album have beautifully entan- gled contemporary rhythms with Zanzibar’s most loved classical genre.
