Dinner Entertainment

Musiki Manjaro is a contemporary African dance band based in Melbourne, Australia. Since 1989 the band has played more than 800 performances in clubs, pubs and festivals throughout Australia, as well as a 42 show, 7 week Asian tour in 1996.

Everywhere audiences have been taken with the band's own blend of high energy infectious dance music from Central, East and Southern Africa - music with influences ranging from traditional African melodies to smooth, tropical Latin rhythms.

The line-up comprises vocals, electric guitars, drums, bass, keyboards and percussion, producing powerful uplifting music that gets people up on the dance floor within seconds. Music which has universal appeal, crossing all boundaries of age and race.

Musiki Manjaro is a mix of African and Australian musicians and often includes international guests, such as Zaire's So Kalmery (1994), Sierra Leone's Abdul Tee-Jay (1991) and most recently Tanzania's Shomari Ally, featured on the new album Kangarumba.
