Tiyende Pamodzi

Dr. Kenneth Kaunda,  (image courtesy of has a lot of information about Zambian music.

For example, you can listen to the original recording of Tiyende Pamodzi, ("Let's walk together"), a song popularized by Zambia's first President, Dr. Kenneth Kaunda, who used the song in his election campaign. For his purposes, the title would likely be translated as "Let's move together with one heart." (And Clinton thought Don't Stop was meaningful.)

And don't forget to listen to The Long Walk to Freedom, by Roby Mathew, a song commemorating Nelson Mandel's struggle.
