A Taarab orchestra plays in the Cultural Music Club in Stone Town, Zanzibar. It is difficult to determine the precise history of the Taarab music in Zanzibar. However the legend has it that Taarab in Zanzibar was started by the Sultan Seyyid Barghash 1870-1888. It was this ruler who started it all in Zanzibar that later spread over all of East Africa. He imported a Taarab ensemble from Egypt to play in his Beit el-Ajab palace. Later on he decided to send to Egypt Mohamed Ibrahim to learn the music and he also learned to play the instrument know by the name of Kanuni. Upon his return he formed a Zanzibar Taarab orchestra. In 1905 Zanzibar’s second music society Ikwhani Safaa Musical Club was established and continues to thrive today with around 35 active members. Ikwhani Safaa and Cultural Music Club founded at 1958 remained the leading Zanzibar Taarab orchestra.. Sound Captions: 20050702taarab1.amr20050702taarab2.amr20050702taarab3.amr
