African Music

We have a long conenction with Africa and in particular East Africa. Our founders African connection starts when he was a student in the 1970's. Playing in a rock band he soon discovered 'Osibisa', the first African band to make it into the western dominated music market. He still has those original vinyl records!

He finally arrived in Africa to work in 1980 and dicovered the pulsating sounds of "Matatu Music".
Whist still maintaining conenction to 'Western Music' his many travels throughout the 1970's and 1980's developed a love of what is now termed 'World Music'.

Passport travel has already operated one recent (October 2010) adult group to South Africa, Tanzania and Kenya. Another tour is set for February 2012 which is going to the famous Malian Niger River Music Festival.

Africa is a continent rich in music. You could combine a community aid tour with music.
