Dance music is one of Tanzania's music genres and most loved music style which is derived from Congolese music famously known as Soukous. Dance Music is also referred to as Tanzanian rumba.

The Music  started in 1930s in the Dar es Salaam area ,where most dance bands come from, notable dance bands include DDC Mlimani Park, International Orchestra Safari Sound, Juwata Jazz, Marquis Original, Super Matimila, and Vijana Jazz. The style spread through out Tanzania as a result new bands were formed like Moro Jazz,Tabora Jazz and others.

Juwata Jazz,now Msondo Ngoma, is Dar's oldest surviving band. It has served as a breeding ground for many of Tanzania's best musicians, including members of both Mlimani Park and Safari Sound.
