Jagwa Music


Jagwa Music is a band from Tanzania that usually perform their energetic, noisy dance music in the streets of their home town Dar es Salaam. They use a couple of old Casio toy keyboards, amplified by a noisy sound system, and a whole lot of traditional drums. Friends at the record label Crammed Discs first brought Jagwa Music to my attention, and we eventually decided to try to bring them to Sweden to perform at the Clandestino Festival. I made brief interview with the band, and since there is hardly any information available about them, check it out:https://www.clandestinofestival.org/2012/en/jagwa-music/
