Sauti Za Busara announces 2012 festival dates


East Africa’s most popular and globally best known music and art festival, Sauti Za Busara, has just announced the dates for the 9th edition next year. Lovers of traditional African music and of African contemporary groups are invited back to Zanzibar between Wednesday 08th February 2012 and Sunday 12th February. Considering the success of last month’s 8th edition it may be wise to make early arrangements this year to visit the ‘Spice Island’ as reports from Zanzibar talked of ‘full house’ and aircraft fully booked for the few trying at the very last minute to get to the festival.

Artists will have until 31st of July this year to apply for participation, and those places are in greater demand than ever before, considering that Sauti Za Busara has established itself as THE music and art festival in Eastern Africa with the spotlight of the entire globe on it for the duration. Music films will have an extended application and submission deadline of 30th September.

Sauti Za Busara is now also on Facebook where some of the spectacular pictures of this year’s festival have been posted.
