About Bazrangids: http://www.reference.com/browse/bazrangids The Bazrangids (also known as Bazrangi or Badhrangids ) were an ancient mountain-dwelling Iranian tribe that established a maritime empire outside the Iranian plateau. Their first major overseas possession entailed Mazun (present-day Oman) and the port of Suhar became the region's capital. By the end of the 1st century BC, most of the islands of East Africa were annexed by the Bazrangids. These islands entailed Socotra, Zanzibar, Pemba, Mafia, Combolo/Comoros and Madagascar. By the 1st century AD, they became the dominant maritime power in the Indian Ocean with headquarters at newly-founded ports from Madagascar to Somalia.

And about Shirazi era: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shirazi_era The "Shirazi era" refers to a period in the history of East Africa (and especially Tanzania), between the 13th century and 15th century, when Persian city-states were founded on the eastern coast of Africa as well as on its islands. These Persian settlers were mostly from the Shiraz region, and the present day Shirazi people claim to descend from these settlers.
