Watafiti Mtandao 2012!
BAHATI MBAYA(No More Zawadi)........Hakuna kuhonga Utamaduni, the Swahili Scrap Opera will only become a reality through the cooperation of Artists longing for Cultural Innovation. In other words Moyo Zaidi - Msaada to cover the cost only - like all successful Watafiti projects have proven in the past.
Together with this return to the original Watafiti Principal, Watafiti.com website crashed early February (2012) - Was This A Coincidence? - .
It took your super-user 2 weeks to rebuild the new Watafiti.com WebSite. Please visit the new site and register if you are ready for the Swahili (scrap) Opera.
Due to excessive spam users only approved members will have access to the registered section of the website. And that is the part of the website where we will complete the Swahili Opera. We have tried to salvage the real "Watafiti" registered members from our crashed website, in case you fail to enter the new registered site please re-register. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Ahsante kwa Uvumulivu Wako.

The Swahili Scrap Opera
Since 2003, Watafiti members have been involved in the production of a Swahili Scrap Opera, the Kiswahili working title of the production is "Utenzi Gerezani". The plan is to perform this overwhelming stage show in football stadium in Tanzania. Like in most countries it is the regions where culture and entertainment is in limited supply compared with the Capital City. East Africa deserves more than televised soaps.
The story line of the scrap opera, the music and the Kiswahili script have been completed for seventy percent. Some forty Tanzanian artists have contributed in one way or an other in shaping the production to its present status. Many more will be associated especially because we also start involving Swahili speaking artists outside Tanzania.
In case you are interested in joining the making of, arguably, "The First Swahili Opera" please register and read more about the project.
The "scrap" is an important component of the whole project, not only are the main actors scrapworkers, also scrap music and the inventive us of recycled materials (Chuma Chakavu) in developing countries is featured in the Opera story line.
In an interview in Dar es Salaam the role of the Swahili Scrap Opera in Tanzania is deliberated by various professional.
