Additional Info: GROUP BACKGROUND.
The Afrikali band was formed late 2003 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. AFRIKALI is composed by the words Africa and Kali, Swahili slang meaning extremely good and wonderful. The choice of this name shows how proud we are with our African roots and the positive development of our music. The band has eight members; all comes from different parts of Tanzania. In our band we use different languages from various Tanzanian tribes such as Makonde, Nyakyusa, Nyasa, Nyamwezi and Swahili. Our style of music is called AFROFUSION meaning the mixture of different styles of African music thus combining traditional dance choreography with traditional instruments and modern instruments e.g. guitar, drum sets and traditional drums (Ngoma) which always makes our music very interesting and danceable (unique) to everyone who happen to listen.
Afrikali band won the first prize in the Music Crossroads Southern Africa 5th Interregional Festival in 2005 in Blantyre, Malawi after being in a very stiff challenge from other four countries, Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe and thus demonstrating how Afrikali wishes to show young people in Africa and abroad that music has the power to make their voices be heard. By winning the above mentioned prize enabled the band to go to the EUROPEAN TOUR on which we participated fully on doing our afro fusion type of music in more than 8 European countries, Netherlands, Belgium, Croatia, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovenia, Spain and Austria in different music festivals.
Also when were in the tour we happen to go in America as we had several concerts and workshops during the First Music World Forum in Los Angeles and California and performed in the West Angeles Church as a support act of Miriam Makeba.
Our songs are about love, unity, poverty and the fight against HIV/AIDS in our local communities in a nutshell we have based our music on expressing day to day lives of African people. As our band sings and
brings the message to the audience about the problems, success, and the actual life that are faced by Africans.
