Paul Ngozi (Nogozi means danger) with his band gave a popular voice to what later was called “Zamrock”, a cool fusion of older African rhythms and 70s rockish underground modes – never too polished, but with a tightness that might have made Anglo groups up in London sit up and take notice! The guitars are razor-sharp here which sounds great next to the harder rhythms at the bottom, and the album’s mix of English and Zambian lyrics.
Paul Ngozi recorded at least 10 albums, another one which is famous among collectors is Chrissy Zebby Tembo & Ngozi Family, which comes out soon on Shadoks Music.
You will love this one if you liked THE WITCH and AMANAZ. Great album, great artwork, a masterpiece from Zambia!
