Isack Abeneko's music have been created in different traditional dances, melodies and rhythm brought to contemporary music life, which promote Tanzanian traditional and contemporary music that inspired original songs and dance from Tanzania. It is a hope to provide a different perspective to the youth who are inspired by western culture and other music styles. They have not grown up to appreciate their own musical heritage which is disappearing. ABENEKO has released his first album known as 'MAMA CHAMBEWA' which was officially launched in Doa Doa, Uganda in 2015.
He is a talented freelance contemporary performer as a musician, actor, dancer and choreographer focusing on live stage performing arts, such as music, dance and drama in various specific collaboration projects.
ABENEKO's artistic music work is motivated in the creative and collaborative processes within cultures, politics, economics and technology of Africa for education, entertainment and critique through the power of creative arts.
ABENEKO has participated in different music projects such as cultural exchange programs, training programs and collaborative projects.
He has performed with his Band of 6 members around in Dar es Salaam city, Bagamoyo at Karibu Music festival, Zanzibar, Jinja, Uganda at Doa Doa and etc. Internationally in countries such as South Korea, USA, Germany, Austria, Denmark, Poland, Holland, Spain, South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Malawi and Mozambique. This has allowed ABENEKO to experience a positive social and economic expansion in his life.
