I Like This: Amanaz

I’d never heard of Amanaz before today–understandable since they’re a five-person group from Zitwe, Zambia–but but I had an instant emotional connection to this song called “Khala My Friend.”  For more, investigate their 1975 Zam-rock classic, Africa.

History is never dead, my friends.  There’s always brilliant older material waiting to be discovered.
