As in other countries, the musical production in Tanzania is constantly undergoing changes. Music listened to by Tanzanians today stretches from traditional African music or the string-based taarab to a distinctive hip hop known as bongo flava. The melody is also the national anthem of Zambia. In Tanzania, Swahili lyrics were written for this anthem. Bongo Flava is one of the newer Tanzanian genres, developed in the s, and is a fusion genre. Its name denotes the Swahilisation of global music forms by incorporating Tanzanian musical and linguistic elements. The current trend among Tanzanian music consumers has started changing from international popular music towards favouring products from their local artists who sing in Swahili , the national language. The more than ethnic groups of Tanzania have developed a large number of specific traditional musical and dance styles with corresponding instruments. The Zaramo people, for instance, perform traditional dance, such as " Mitamba Yalagala Kumchuzi " on tuned goblet drums, tuned cylindrical drums, and tin rattles. The multi-instrumentalist Hukwe Zawose , a member of the Gogo ethnic group, was the 20th century's most prominent exponent of Tanzanian traditional music.
