Magic Carpet Sessions presents:
MOHAMED ISSA MATONA & AFDHAL GROUP (ZANZIBAR-TANZANIA/NORWAY)
Mohamed Issa Matona is one of Tanzanias most sought after musicians. As a masterful percussionist, violinist, maqam-trained Ud-player and a scholar, he effortlessly fuses the music of his own country with different styles from around the globe.
The Afdhal Group consist of hand picked jazz musicians from Norway, a country in which Matona has close musical bonds. Using the beautiful Taarab music of Zanzibar as a platform, the group explores the harmonic, melodic and rythmic possibilities it offers. Anchored in proud tradition, but always exploring, twisting and turning, the result is truly unique.
