For The Love Of African Music

10:30 am

In my efforts to continue bringing Africa together one passport stamp at a time, I thought it brilliant to compile a list of the best African Music Festivals that showcase the best of African Music. I hope to attend most of these in 2015 starting off in Zanzibar for the Sauti za Busara.
If anyone is in the business of cloning people, please start with me so I can attend all African Music Festivals and never miss one.
