Dear Everyone,

It is my pleasure to inform you about our music club and the music festivals. Last month we went to the Zonals level where we presented class 1122J, class 1123J, 1125J and 1127 J. We won all the classes apart from 1125J which we took position two.

We will be going for our provincial level on July 6th, 2009. We will be presenting class 1121J, 1122 J, 1123J, and 1125 J in addition to taarab and Khaeida. We all have hope that we will win all the classes that we will presenting in.

I joined music because I like music very much. During my free time I like listening to music and reading novels.

May God bless you very much for supporting me and our school.

Good bye,
Yours faithful,
Charles

Dear Everyone,

Hello! How are you? I hope that you are fine. I am fine here in Galilee. The reason I have taken this golden opportunity is to thank you and to inform you that you I am fine and to inform you about our school.

In our school we have new classes and good flower beds. We also have a well equipped library, thank you.

I am still participating in music club at our school. Last month we went to compete with other schools and we have become the winners. The songs which we performed were Taarab, Kasida, poems and Lahya dance.

Next term we hope will be going to Mombasa to compete in the Nationals. Please pray for us.

May God Bless you and your family and also your friends.

Your Friend, Brenda


This information was taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taarab
Taarab is a music genre popular in Tanzania and Kenya. It is influenced by music from the cultures with a historical presence in East Africa, including music from East Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, North Africa, the Middle East and Europe. Taarab rose to prominence in 1928 with the rise of the genre's first star, Siti binti Saad.
According to local legend, taarab was started by Sultan Seyyid Barghash bin Said (1870-1888); he liked luxury and the pleasures of life. It was this ruler who started Taarab in Zanzibar and later it spread all over East Africa. He imported a taarab ensemble from Egypt, to play in his Beit el-Ajab palace. Later on he decided to send to Egypt Mohamed Ibrahim to learn music and he also learned to play the Kanun. Upon his return he formed the Zanzibar Taarab Orchestra. In 1905, Zanzibar's second music society, Ikwhani Safaa Musical Club, was established and continues to thrive until today.
