90's music - The 90’s started where the 80’s finished off musically but then we saw Electronic music, which had increased in popularity in the 1980s, grew highly very in the 1990s; house and techno from the 1980s rose to international success in this decade, as well as new electronic dance music genres such as Techno and Trance.

Alternative 80’s night in Tanzania

Alternative 80's night in Tanzania - While in Zanzibar, I also played at an 80's event. They did not want the normal 80's cheese and chart music but a cooler more club like set.

With over 250 people all ready for  a festive party this turned into a really enjoyable corporate event.   With it being Christmas, I played a
