2003 release. Off to the sides of the main road between Livingstone and Lusaka, Zambia's Southern Province is vibrant with a large diversity of music -- topical songs, unique guitar styles (often with self-made guitars), catchy tunes and rhythms, beautiful harmony singing, and some nice drumming! The roadside reality -- the state of music as it is. And it is the hands of wonderful individualistic musicians, in this relatively unknown part of Africa, who deserve a wider audience. Relaxed field recordings by Michael Baird made in 1996 and 2002. Includes a 20-page booklet.
