Sound Harvest releases ‘Zambians’

KELVIN KACHINGWE, Lusaka
SOUND Harvest, a local reggae outfit made up of Most Maluma and Tomcat Kakwisa, has released an eight-track album titled Zambians, a reggae-laced project of what you would call redemption songs.
The album has been produced by Vincent Ketula Kibaya aka The Pro. Sound Harvest has a lot of respect for The Pro.
“This package must bring joy to the reggae music fraternity, who for a spell have been deprived of quality entertainment. The Pro in his passionate pursuit to produce an authentic Zambian reggae album has turned the tables and has left no stone unturned and has dared to tread where angels fear to tread,” Sounds Harvest says.
“For a long time now, not much has been done to jack up and rekindle the spirit of reggae music on the local scene, and that’s why The Pro could be that particular individual that the local world of reggae was waiting for.
“With the presence of an astute producer like The Pro, we can boldly proclaim that things are looking up for reggae artistes in our country. Just as Chris Blackwell was instrumental on the island of Jamaica to propel reggae music to greater heights like was the case of Bob Marley and the Wailers, we remain confident in the reggae production of The Pro to propel Zambian reggae music to greater heights.”
The album Zambians, on which all the songs were composed and arranged by Most Maluma and Tomcat Kakwisa, was recorded, engineered and mastered at Province Studios in Lusaka.
It opens with the song Give Thanks, which implores all who believe in God to give Him due thanks, and closes with Mwambo, a counsel to Zambians not to discard their culture.
In-between, there are songs like Love is Religion, which talks about having a religion that does not condone war, discrimination and exploitation of man by man; Ndiwe Namba One, which celebrates the importance of women in the nation and the title-track Zambians, which celebrates the character of Zambians, who have earned themselves the title of a peace-loving nation.
There is also Nkosi, which talks about God the King, who’s in control; Mtendere, which advises the politicians not to abuse political power; and Tisapatululane, which warns about the ugly side of tribalism.
