    Zambian music and Zambian musicians

    in Music


    “The oppressed use music to express themselves”, this why the music industry of the previously oppressed societies—for example, Black Americans and South African—is a success. On the other hand, music is a multi-billion industry. Now that Zambian music is developing to world-class with Zambians singing internationally and winning medals in global competition, do we see this industry developing into a business that can address household poverty and contribute significantly to economic development. Kambidima speaks to Chisenga Gander Katongo (C.R.I.$.I.$ Mr Swagger) and Fortune Nyondo, to discuss Zambian music and Zambian musicians. What is the secret of their success? What is their focus? What keeps them going? What help do they need and from whom? Born and raised in Zambia, Fortune Nyondo (http://www.fortunesmusic.com/) is a Christian singer, songwriter, composer and arranger. He is also founder of a non-profit organization called Fortune Pilgrim (http://www.fortunepilgrim.org/) that seeks to change the lives of AIDS, Malaria, and Tuberculosis victims in Zambia, and other countries around the world. On his website, Fortune testifies to the awsome healing power of Jesus Christ through his music, and brings it to reality through Fortune Pilgrim. Similarly, born and raised in Lusaka, Chisenga Katongo (http://www.reverbnation.com/hiphopcrisis?eid=3578800_19597450#!/page_object/page_object_bio/artist_64688) a Hip-Hop fan since age 10 is now a world class Hip-Hop artist.

    Marsha Winsryg and the African Artists' Community Development Project (AACDP)

    in Lifestyle

    Marsha Winsryg may have gone to Africa to site see and look at local culture but when that culture reached out to her as an artist and teacher, something happened. She was asked by local artisans to take their wares back to the USA and sell them, which she did. However, as she really looked around she saw a need , a humanitarian need especially among children, that was created by the cultural devastation that was a looming as a result of the HIV/AIDS crisis. In Zambia, one out of three people are HIV positive and everyone has lost family members. Most adults are caring for orphans as well as their own children in an economy that barely sustains a subsistence lifestyle.


    As a response to her question, "What can  I DO?" , Marsha founded The African Artisans Community Development Project—AACDP—provides economic opportunity for Zambian artisans while generating cash support for local Zambian NGOs treating children who have been orphaned or disabled as a result of the HIV/AIDS crisis.

    Their method is simple and cost-effective. Thet buy Zambian crafts from local artisans at full market rate for Africa;  sell the crafts back n the United States at American rates; and then send the profits back to Zambian schools and clinics providing services to children.

    The Ndustry Presents : "The Virgin Cure Movie," Writer and Director, Nyasha Vera

    in Entertainment

    THIS WEEK ON THE NDUSTRY, HOSTS AKIA & NICOLE HOST, INTERNATIONAL LEADER, ADVOCATE AND FILMMAKER, NYASHA VERA! 


    Nyasha Vera is a Zambian born writer and producer of the Virgin Cure Movie. An alumnus of the George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs, she has over six years of documentary and independent film experience. She has recently begun her Virgin Cure Movie lecture tour in Great Britain at Manchester Metropolitan University and future engagements are currently being set in both the United States and Europe.


    Her childhood was spent in Zambia and Zimbabwe, and her experiences there were the main inspiration for this film. An advocate for both gender equality issues and victims of HIV/AIDS, she has spent the past six years bringing these issues to the mainstream and her film project to fruition. She has worked hand in hand with HIV/AIDS organizations in Africa and the United States, and looks forward to raising awareness to a worldwide audience regarding rape, HIV/AIDS and its devastating aftermath.


    The Virgin Cure Movie features the lives of four broken, young girls who share a common link--they are all victims of child rape in South Africa. An atrocity and common practice in this area, these rapes are thought to be associated with the “virgin cure” myth. They share their painful stories in hopes of preserving the purity and health of other infants and children, in their region and around the world.

    Isaac Mwanza - Governance Advisor YALI

    in Politics

    Isaac Mwanza serves as Governance Advisor at the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) in Zambia, he was recently in the United States as a Mandela Washington Fellow at the Invitation of US President Obama and studied civic leaders at the Presidential Precinct in Virginia.During the Fellowship, he studied at Jameson Madison's Montpelier Center for the Constitution, Americas premier constitutional training center where he studied on constitutional reform. YALI was until recently part of the Grand Coalition on the people driven constitution in Zambia until they left the organization whose emphasis and position is enacting the constitution through a national referendum. Isaac joins us to discuss YALI's position on the constitution adoption process, is it a logical or even practical for the constitution to be enacted before the 2016 General Elections? What are the options of this being achieved at minimal cost with all stake holders being in agreement? Is the government road map realistic or it is another strategy of delaying tactics? which provisions in the draft constitution are YALI's primary concern which need to be addressed? Join us for another insightful discussion as we reflect on the daunting task of the constitution making process in Zambia and how those in the Diaspora community can contribute to the process.
