By George A,F Nindi-Shalom Music Leader.  
                                               Music is an art form whose medium is sound and silence. Its common elements are pitch -which governs melody and harmony, rhythm and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation, dynamics, and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture.

Music is derived from Greek μουσική   mousike; "art of the Muses"
The creation, performance, significance, and even the definition of music vary according to culture and social context. Music ranges from strictly organized compositions and their recreation in performance, through improvisational music to aleatoric forms. Music can be divided into genres and subgenres, although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to individual interpretation, and occasionally controversial. Within "the arts", music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art, and auditory art.
To many people in many cultures, music is an important part of their way of life.In Tanzania we are having different kinds of Music, the famous once are Bongo Fleva which is listened by the youth, Traditional music played mostly live in villages during special events like wedding ceremonies.In towns people are listen from various music player devices.
 Sebene is music which has influence from Democracy of Congo. Taarabu and Mduara is the music originated from  coastal region.
