Jagwa Music: Exhilarating Street Sounds of Tanzania

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

Photo by Werner Graebner.

We heat up chilly NJ this week with the scorching sounds of Jagwa Music. (Jagwa being Swahili slang for Jaguar fighter jets.) Jagwa Music's turbo boosted mchiriku street music has been called "hand-made techno": Just their voices, fire-tuned home-made drums, one battered vintage casio and a whole lot of energy.

Jagwa Music’s 2012 album Bongo Hotheads (Crammed Discs) made a big splash in European world music circles and they’ve become darlings of the European rock and world music festival circuits.

Don't miss their Garden State radio debut, with big thanks to the State Department's Center Stage cultural-exchange program for bringing them here all the way from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania!

Big thanks to our illustrious engineer Dave Satkowski, special assistant Rob C, band manager Kwame Mchauru, tour manager Stacey Boggs, Deirdre Valente and Lisa Booth management, Center Stage, NEFA and everyone who helped make this happen.

It was interesting when Meghan played some African heavy metal during the Africa series she did a couple of years ago.
