From the Copperbelt… Zambian Miners’ Songs
Various Artists, Original Music 1989

from-the-copperbelt-front

I was asked if there was more in this series and it just so
happens there is. I almost forgot about it. This one comes from
cd and it is from 1989. The songs the copper miners from the
early years in Zambia used to sing. Not only miners but also
minstrels who travelled from mine to mine putting on shows
in the compounds for a living. We hear about three languages,
Aushi, Bemba and Luunda. Bemba and Luunda being from Zaïre.

Ik kreeg de vraag of er meer delen in deze serie beschikbaar
waren en ik vergat bijna deze. Hij komt van cd en verscheen in
1989. We vinden hier de muziek van de kopermijnwerkers uit
de ‘Copperbelt’. We horen niet alleen de mijnwerkers maar ook
rondtrekkende muzikanten die van mijn naar mijn trokken en
shows opzetten om hun brood te verdienen. We horen hier
voornamelijk de talen, Aushi, Bemba en Luunda. Bemba en
Luunda zijn talen die uit Zaïre stammen.

Zambiance ! – Various Artists,Globe Style 1989

Zambiance, front

In 1989 Globe Style came out with this collector of Zambian
music. We get to hear songs in several languages such as;
Luvale, Bemba, Tonga, Mambwe and Lozi. Nothing yet if you
realize Zambia has a population of some 7 million people from
over 73 tribes. Styles like ‘kalindula’, ‘mantyantya’ and ‘zam-
rhumba’ are just a few of the country’s rich flavours.
