MBARAKA MWINSHEHE - Shida @charles


Morogoro Jazz Band, also known as K.Z. Morogoro Jazz Band, was a seminal Tanzanian muziki wa dansi band, one of the few that were not based in Dar es Salaam. The band originally played live at the Morogoro Hotel in Morogoro (about 200 km west of Dar) and became very popular in the 1960s and 1970s, receiving much airplay from Tanzanian radio stations.[1] The leader of the band was guitarist Mbaraka Mwinshehe, a former member of Cuban Branch Jazz. The original lineup also included Salim Abdullah, who would later found Cuban Marimba.

Mbaraka Mwinshehe died following an automobile accident in 1979 in Alifia Mombasa hospital
