The festival aims to provide a platform for artists across Africa and beyond, whilst promoting and showcasing local talent enabling both to come together. Remmy’s inspiration was to develop the fusion of different art forms and musical styles.

We aim to provide opportunities for local artists to develop and grow through building international networks, hence contributing to the social, cultural and economic growth of Tanzania. The ONGALA MUSIC FESTIVAL is intended to become a beacon of Tanzanian culture and artistry, with performances and happenings documented on film and through recordings. In this way we hope to encourage an international audience to come to Tanzania as the reputation of the festival grows!
