Stone Town is as old as the first told stories of its Island. The first Arab sea traders are said to have mentioned the 'Coast of the black people' – the land of Zenj – from which the name Zanzibar is believed to have come from. The Island's strategic and accessible location along the East African coast turned it into cosmopolitan centre where Arab, Indians, Europeans and African traditions and cultures all got merged together.

The waves are tinted vermilion, with underlying streaks of blue that clash with it. Acrylic on canvas size= 100cm x 76cm.
