Stone Town Records
Connection. Community. Creativity.
Stone Town Records is a grassroots, locally run, music studio located in an intimate historic building in Stone Town. A lively community of artists living and breathing on our rooftop terrace, playing the oud, quanun, violin and other traditional taarab instruments, singing and rapping whilst fusing their cultural roots with the countless influences they are exposed to living on the beautiful island Zanzibar..
The Stone Town Records community is the initiative of a group of friends and creatives and came into existence after we managed to raise funds at the Sauti Za Busara Festival 2015. Since then we are continuously producing music, holding workshops, organising events and hosting guests from all over the world in order to create musical change and development for Zanzibar and Tanzania.
We were able to host and work with artists such as Akua Naru (USA), EA Wave (Kenya), Nuri Bedja (Belgium), Reallionaire Jream (USA), H-ART THE BAND (KE), DJ Adamus (PL) and several others during recording sessions of live events. We have a close working relationship with the DCMA Music Academy and the Hip Hop Saves Lives NGO from Brooklyn.
"We are thankful to CEEZ to continuously support us with mentorship and equipment, but we are still in need for more support in order to reach out to more artists and expand our creative possibilities"
