This year CAC provided the majority of the entertainment on the main stage at the combined exposition for tourist stakeholders, Karibu Kilifair, from the 1-3 June. It was an opportunity to showcase some of the varied talents of our artists, and we presented traditional dancing and drumming, a masked dance, workshops for children and adults in dancing, hiphop, and acrobatics (collaborating with 4 other local acrobats).
CAC fusion band also provided the entertainment at the AMEG hotel on Friday evening, playing international and Tanzanian hit songs. With weeks of learning lyrics in English, Spanish and other languages they played favourites such as Hotel California (Eagles), Despacito (Luis Fonsi), Sura Yako (Sauti Sol), One Love (Bob Marley) and Loliwe (Zahara). A good night was had by all!
Our stall in the fairground was also busy, both with people learning about the CAC and our activities, and people making music on the ngoma (drums), pembe (horn), kayamba (shaker) and zeze (stringed instrument) that we had on display to give people a taste of what they can see and do at the Centre. Our aim was to encourage more visitors to come along and try out the activities that we have on offer, and we were successful in that there was a buzz around the CAC. Hopefully some of these visitors will make it to the centre!
