Sometimes Music makes anything worthwhile, and what better way to enjoy your dinner night with a live band. Recently had the privilege of having dinner at Heritage Hotels – Voyager beach resort. There was a live Band playing called Jambo Africa who was standing in for Mombasa roots.
Mombasa Roots was founded in 1977, a brainchild of the ‘Juma Brothers’ from Mombasa – Suleiman Juma (keyboards, vocals), Saeed Juma (band manager) and Ebrahim Juma (guitar). They were later joined by Mahmood Siraj (guitar and vocals), Hassan Malambo (trumpet and vocals), Tamrat Kabede (drums), and a fourth Juma brother, Ahmed (guitar, saxophone, and vocals). The band played live gigs around the coast which then spread out to the rest of Kenya.
This led to opportunities to tour and perform abroad. These tours saw the group play in Germany, Switzerland, Canada, Dubai, and Oman among other venues.
Mombasa roots perform every Wednesday and Saturday nights at Voyager Beach Resort, the themes for dinner on Wednesday is Swahili and on Saturday it’s Kenyan. The dinner price is kshs 2000 for non-residents at voyager. Drinks are billed separate.
You can enjoy the mouthwatering dishes while enjoying a live band playing most famous rhythms. After dinner you can dance the night away till 11pm when the band stops playing, or just sing with your friends to the most popular songs on the chart.

- The serve Swahili breakfast every Wednesday and Sunday.
