2013 release. Music is abundant in Zambia, it is part of everyday life. And this landlocked country contains many different cultures within its borders: this album merely touches on some of them. Zambia's musical diversity and richness is indeed a true natural resource, but to this day it is still underestimated and relatively unknown. SWP Records presents here upbeat rural recordings with deep dance grooves, marvelous drumming, an old silimba xylophone master, exquisite vocal harmonizing, uplifting gospel music Zambian-style, and the ancient kalumbu bow -- a mixture of youth and tradition. No two ways about it, you will come away happier after hearing this wonderfully honest music. Includes a 20-page booklet.
