Sauti Za Busara just two months away


The 10th edition of Sauti Za Busara, East Africa’s most popular performing arts festival held on the spice island of Zanzibar, is gearing up as final preparations are now underway for the February 14 – 17 event.

It has not been lost on the festival organizers that February 14th is in fact Valentine’s Day and hotels and restaurants, as well as performing artists, will pay special attention to the theme of that day, being Love of course.

Booking early is absolutely essential for those wishing to go to Zanzibar in February, as accommodation and flights are getting tight already and the festival organizers have a dedicated link on their website which is aimed to assist wannabe visitors and answer all the frequently asked questions, aka FAQ’s, as well as help in finding available hotel rooms.

An impressive lineup of Africa’s top musicians and artists, all performing live on stage, has been secured and the parallel Movers and Shakers Forum alongside the film festival and other activities have added great value to what started out 10 years ago as a simple festival of music, celebrating local artists, before ballooning into the globally renowned festival, arguably the most important in Africa now, it has since become.
