Travel Tip: Pop Culture and Cinema in England
Jagwa Music



Jagwa Music
ENGLAND
LONDON  •  Cargo  •  Ongoing
 
 

The DIY ethic in music has extended far beyond the back-to-basics sensibilities of the punk scene.

It's prevalent in Africa where economic necessity dictates that anyone wishing to make music must take such an approach, fashioning instruments from whatever's close to hand. This is the modus operandi of Jagwa Music, a collective of eight youngsters from the streets of Dar-Es-Salaam who play percussion forged from plastic piping and arm themselves with battered, long-discarded Casio keyboards wired up to ancient megaphones.

Fronted by a pair of spectacular dancers and a singer/MC whose lyrics tell of survival in the at-times turbulent Tanzanian capital.
