Tanzania: Bagamoyo Arts Festival Grabs Attention As Mwakyembe Gives Kudos

Minister for Information, Culture, Arts and Sports, Dr Harrison has said arts festivals organised by Bagamoyo College of Arts (TaSUBa) are key in upholding patriotism in the country.

He said this on Saturday when he launched the 37th festival's celebration in historical Bagamoyo Town in Coast Region.

The Minister said the music festival has been a great milestone for the initiation of other art festivals across the country.

"These festivals are highly important in restoring, developing and sustaining patriotism among Tanzania, amid this era of globalization, fueled by great development in information and communication technology (ICT)," he added.

Dr Mwakyembe also commended TaSUBa for its consistency in organizing and hosting the event annually as well as sponsors who fund and make it possible for the event to take place.

The event has received a massive turn up of people to witness traditional dances, drama, poetry and other activities performed by both the locals and foreigners.

The annual festival hosted by the TaSUBa will last for a week.
