Deni returned to Zanzibar for a couple of weeks in January 2020, where she took "The Stone Town Rockerz" into a recording studio to record tracks for her upcoming CD release.
Deni Bonet was made an ARTS ENVOY to Zanzibar, Tanzania this past August. She was selected to participate in the “Arts Envoy Program”, with a grant supported by the U.S. State Department. There’s only a small number of these grants awarded each year, so it was a terrific honor! She did a residency at the prestigious Dhow Countries Music Academy in Stone Town, which Deni called "the Juilliard of East Africa", teaching songwriting, rock and roll, and violin! She also mentored a local rock band, The Stone Town Rockerz. The month finished with a big concert in Dar es Salaam which was sponsored by the US Embassy of Tanzania.
