Tuwaenzi Wakongwe

Tuwaenzi Wakongwe! Let us Honor the Legends! A commemorative event in honor of past teachers at TaSUBa on 17 December 2010. The event was organized by Hussein Masimbi and other tutors at the college, after the passing of Master Musician and TaSUBa tutor Mzee Bazil Mbata on 13 October 2010. Artists performed for free and the ticket price was kept low so that TaSUBa and the Bagamoyo community could share the moment through the cultural ethos of pamoja (togetherness). The event was a huge success and it brought back the spirit of sanaa (art) at TaSUBa. Digital Drama investigates how TaSUBa lost sanaa in the first place, and with it the spirit of the nation.
