Shikamoo Jazz TANZANIA
'Chela Chela Vol 1' (RETRO9CD)  
Old Gold from Swahili veterans.

'The album is surprisingly modern, with rich and smoky vocals, strong rhythms, powerful saxes and the odd outrageous stroke' Folk Roots

'Pure joy, and the best album of 1995 so far' Tradewind

The musicians in Shikamoo Jazz bring over 300 years of professional experience to their rich repertoire of original East African music. Most of the musicians come from mainland Tanzania and either led, or performed with, such legendary outfits as Kiko Kids, Western Jazz, Dar Jazz and Led Wanyika. They are joined by evergreen Kenyan star Fundi Konde and a contingent from Zanzibar.

Formed in 1993 in Dar Es Salaam, Shikamoo Jazz quickly became the the top society band in Tanzania, introducing their relaxed Chela Chela style to a new generation of music lovers.
