It’s important to realize that just because someone holds a degree in music doesn’t necessary means they are good. Not all musicians are created equal. The problem many musicians are suffering from is a recognition problem. They can’t seem to recognize the music they want to play and how to identify music by pointing out a few things that should be obvious but apparently aren’t.
Musicians without vision will fail. Musicians who lack vision cannot inspire, motivate performance or create sustainable value. Poor vision or a non-existent vision will cause musician to fail. Musicians who lack character or integrity will not endure the test of time.
The best musicians are acutely aware of how much they don’t know. They have no need to be the smartest artist but have the unyielding desire to learn from others.
We found our inspiration for the Zambia Music website header at the moment that we discovered the beautiful photograph of elephants along the river at sunset. It turned out that this image was available for download from the site of the Kasaka River Lodge.
This lodge represents a 20 beds luxury camp. It is one of these rare facilities that offer an exceptional thus unforgettable Zambian safari experience. Nestled on the banks of the Zambezi River in the Chiawa Game Management area, set in an environment of natural bush with each chalet secluded amongst the native flora and just 4 kilometers by road to the Lower Zambezi National Park. Worth mentioning is that this is the only stretch on the 2,700-kilometer course of the Zambezi River with National Parks on both banks of the river – namely the Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia and the famous Mana Pools World Heritage Site in Zimbabwe.
This having said about a beautiful Zambian area, will I also like to share our current idea’s about what we want to do and in which direction we currently think in regard to the Zambia Music website.
Obviously, we aim at music, music that will recognize the beauty of Zambia on all levels. Music that honors ancient Zambian traditions and positively connecting past time to the time we live in today. Music to make us feel good and to harmonize our inner being. Clean and pure music.
Surfing the Internet for good music and musicians is one avenue, but we hope many site visitors will be willing to support us with bringing inspiring musical Zambians, music and music events to our attention. Anybody engaged in the music industry wherever they live. Every connection with Zambian music can be valuable. We believe that there are highly talented Zambian singers, songwriters, and musicians out there, all over the world. There are black Americans, Brazilians and many more that have their roots in Zambia. Forefathers who long ago were forwarded to new worlds or recently migrated Zambians, but always with proof delivered of a strong breed and capable to start a new life. They surely cherish the Zambesi River inspiration in their heart by which they keep going wherever they are. It will be splendid to get in touch with you.
Your comments, replies, questions, suggest music links, files and articles will be highly appreciated as long as they do justice to Zambia and with respect to all mankind.
