Tanzanian Culture

Education is the basic right & yet 47% of children in sub-Saharan Africa do not attend school. You might ask how come the kids in Tanzania don't attend school well it’s because of several factors. In some cases schools are too far from the kids homes. In other cases Children have to help their family out by doing chores. The kids that end up dropping out of school or not attending school tend to turn towards the street where they struggle getting the supplies they need.

The Language spoken in Tanzania contributes a huge part of the Tanzanian culture. There are over 100 languages spoken in Tanzania. Even though no one language is spoken natively by majority Swahili and English are the official languages. Some of the tribal languages of Tanzania include, Maasai, Sukuma and Makonde. Of the languages that are still alive in Tanzania 3 are institutional, 18 are developing, 60 are vigorous, 38 are in trouble of being extinct, and 7 other languages are dying.

Another huge contributor to the Tanzanian culture is art. Tingatinga and the Makonde sculpture are the two famous types of art styles in Tanzania. The tingatinga involves bright colors and animals to create an interesting painting. Meanwhile the Makonde is a sculpture of a person doing a task or something. Those were two examples of some famous art styles in Tanzania.


Music in Tanzania is another major contributor to the Tanzanian Culture. Bongo flava is the new genre of music in Tanzania. Bongo flava is actually just a nickname for tanzanian hip hop. The genre developed in the 1990s and is usually sung in swahili or english. Bongo flava is most listened to by the youths in Tanzania. In a way Bongo flava is like american hip - hop music because, they both involve same kinds of ideas its just a different type of style.
