Welcome to STRAB
STRAB, The Subterranean Rhythm & Blues experience.
The idea of a music festival in Mozambique started in 2001 when a group of scuba divers decided to add some live music to one of their weekends at Ponta Malongane, located at the southern tip of Mozambique. Starting out as the Ocean Ecstasy Birthday Bash in 2003, Piet Botha and his friends came up with the name Subterranean Rhythm & Blues Experience. The name was abbreviated to STRAB, becoming the official name of the festival from 2005 onwards.
In 2017, the event takes place from 25 - 28 May.
