Zamrock and Sahara blues

I discovered Zamrock today! So amazing!

Thank you to the YouTube algorithm!

From Wikipedia : “Zamrock is a musical genre that emerged in the 1970s in Zambia. It is described as a combination of traditional African music with psychedelic rock, garage rock, hard rock, blues and funk some artists also pulled from acid rock, heavy metal and folk music.”

I also came across these two videos. The channel Bandsplaining has some amazing videos about music and its history.

Les Filles de Illighadad are also marvellous…
