INFO
Here’s something pretty special, Zambian writer and musician Smokey Haangala’s 1976 album Aunka Ma Kwacha (The Money is Gone). Underpinned by the pulse of a simple drum machine (a device that was completely unheard of in Zambia at the time), with Aunka Ma Kwacha, Haangala stylistically ties together elements of psychedelic Zamrock, American folk music, Kalindula, and Sundown Beat (music played after dark) from Tongaland. Sung with beauty and heart in four languages (Bemba, Tonga, Lozi, and English), Haangala’s songs see him utilizing culturally complex sonic backdrops and delivery techniques drawn from Zambian folklore. With these tools at his disposal, he essays on the burdens of financial inequality, and how it impacts the arenas of personal life, love, marriage, social status and diet.
