Guitarist and singer Ndala Kasheba first came to Tanzania with Fauvette, a band from Congo in 1964. He was active in the Dar es Salaam scene ever since then. In the 1970's he led the famous "Orchestra Safari Sound". He then created his own group "Zaita Musica" and toured in Europe. Ndala Kasheba recently departed the world,and will be surely missed by everyone, from the Swahili people to the Swedish, and to those whose ears hear his distinctive twelve string guitar sounds.
