Rikki Ililonga – Zambia

Buy it here

Zambia’s rock scene is startling in its completeness, especially for a scene that emerged, unfurled, and disappeared so quickly. It contained all of rock’s sub-genres, but it was much more than an imitation of American and European rock music: it quickly became a uniquely Zambian movement, befitting of its name. Rikki Ililonga sounds nothing like other rock music from the African continent – or elsewhere.
