  Rajab Suleiman & Kithara  
(Arts)

The lush sights and sounds of Zanzibar are embodied in taarab music, which has defined the island's aural landscape for over a century. Renowned for its mix of Arabic and western instruments, diva-worthy vocalizations, and Swahili lyrics, this venerable form is ambitiously renewed by Rajab Suleiman & Kithara. "Zanzibar is an island where many people have come to live and trade for many centuries, so our music is a mix of African, Arab, Indian, and also European influences," Suleiman muses. "It's not all that different from America, in that way." This marks the ensemble's debut tour to the United States, as part of Center StageSM, an exchange program of the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, produced by the New England Foundation for the Arts.
