The pre-show at #ChicagoTheMusical (now showing at The Little Theatre). The best play I've seen in YEARS!

Who knew there was Fall in Africa? #MikumiNationalPark

Roadtriping from Dar to Mikumi National Park. First stop: Chalinze for some delicious samosas and very clean loos.

Looking up at the roof of Hotel Slipway always makes me happy!

And closing down #SautiZaBusara, the last performer is Cheikh Lo from #Senegal.

The before-last act of #SautiZaBusara: the banned-in-#Zimbabwe 'Comrade Fatso & Chabvondoka' with Amara Brown.

I could've sworn I watched #Zimbabwe's Makoomba perform last night, but this is Makoomba on speed. #SautiZaBusara

5th act tonight @ #SautiZaBusara: powerful #Malian songstress Khaira Arby, whose set began with a call for peace.

4th act of the night @ #SautiZaBusara: Atongo Zimba from #Ghana with musicians he met here in #Zanzibar.

Now on stage at #SautiZaBusara: the legendary (founded in 1958) #Zanzibari Culture Musical Club.

Got to #SautiZaBusara just in time to catch the start of Msafiri Zawose & Sauti Band's set.

The crowd at #SautiZaBusara this Sunday.

My view as I have "lunch" at Archipelago (#Zanzibar) which I'd always passed by but never stepped into.

Mokoomba from #Zimbabwe at #SautiZaBusara last night.

Super Maya Baikoko and the #Baikoko (bum rattling) dancers at #SautiZaBusara last night. :-)
