Brian Chilala is known in Zambia as "The Rebel," with his sharp lyrics satirically addressing both moral and political issues in the country. Onetime protégé of both Zamrock legend Paul Ngozi and Amayenge leader Chris Chali, Chilala has been performing his own songs since 1997, when he also formed his own backing group, Ngoma Zasu. They are a true pan-Zambian band, playing all the dance styles from the various provinces of the country with great expertise and talent; the homegrown kalindula style is alive and well thanks to them, and their live performances are explosive! Zambia lies between the Congo and Zimbabwe, not only geographically, but also musicologically. Looking at it that way, the music just has to be interesting, and this wonderful compilation of Zambia's most energetic frontman and one of the best bands in the country does not disappoint. Kalindula is back -- in fact it never really went away. So Vangaza -- let's dance!
