"70 minutes of mid-'80's music from a little explored region of Africa's prolific musical landscape. Contains many beautiful compositions, boasting a reliable combination of rhythm, harmony, and, of course, guitar brilliance.The geographic location of Zambia, between East and Southern Africa, is reflected in the unique blend of styles, though perhaps a comparison to Kenyan pop is most apt. The song SUNGANI ANA by FIRE FAMILY BAND, though sung in Nyanja, could almost be an offering from Orchestra Super Mazembe or Les Mangelepa. The guitar duet in the second half of this track is as exquisite and heartwarming an offering you could wish for to set your spirits soaring.Languages featured include: Bemba, Mambwe, Tonga, Luvale, Lozi, and Nyanja, so don't expect to understand all the lyrics. Luckily the music speaks for itself. Snap this gem up before it too joins the 'out of stock' section..."
