Mohamed Issa Matona & Afdhal Group | Concert

Date: Thu 01.11 Time: 20:30 - 23:30

Magic Carpet Sessions presents:


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.

Doors open: 19.45 PM
Concert: 20.30 PM
Tickets: 10 EUR

Note: Unless otherwise stated, our program needs no reservation.
