"The crazy white man" is a loose translation of Mzungu Kichaa, and that's exactly what the Tanzanians call Espen Sørensen, who originally hails from Skanderborg in Denmark. He spent much of his childhood living in Africa, and it is there that he developed his musical alter ego, who has achieved great success in East Africa with his signature Bongo Flava style, which mixes reggae, rap, afropop and traditional Tanzanian music. His single Jitolee was a huge hit, and he has been nominated for a Danish World Music Award for both Best World Album and Best World Track. He brings with him six Tanzanian musicians to play the "crazy white man's music".
