2004 release. The electric music from Zaire and Zimbabwe from the '80s may be well-known in the West, the music from Zambia is not. Musically, there is no good reason for this. Zambia had always had a vibrant and diversified music scene, and during the '80s yet another new musical era emerged -- the kalindula years. The true meaning of the era is that rural dance music from all over Zambia went electric and these songs became the big hits of the time: Zambian popular music had finally become roots music! So put yourself in a dancing frame of mind and let yourself be zambushed. Includes a 20-page booklet.
