The Nadi Ikhwan Safaa (also known as “Malindi”) is a Zanzibarian Taraab orchestra. It was founded in 1905 and Zanzibar’s oldest orchestra.
Nadi Ikhwan Safaa (Malindi) Musical Club, was founded following the Sultan’s intention to create recreational associations on the island. The name itself means “brothers who love one another”, and reflects the egalitarian and supportive aims of the club.
The Club has been one of the main currents in Zanzibari music throughout this century – sales of their cassettes used to comprise the bulk of the cassette copy-shops’ trade.
After the revolution in 1964, the name was changed to the Malindi Musical Club and affiliated to the local Party branch, but it is now reverting to the original name. This means that its orchestra is currently known by either name on the island.
