Zambian guitarist and singer/songwriter Mike Nyoni’s music is Zamrock only because it came of age during the country’s rock revolution. He preferred wah-wah to fuzz guitar, James Brown to Jimi Hendrix. His 70s recordings – often politically charged, and ranging from despondent to exuberant – are amongst the funkiest on the African continent.

This anthology collates works from his three 70s LPs and presents a singular Zambian musician on par with celebrated artists like Rikki Illilonga, Keith Mlevhu and Paul Ngozi.
