    • 2. Walking In The Street

    Larry Maluma is an accomplished musician, composer and vocalist and sings a combination of English and his native languages, Nyanja, Bemba and Tonga, adopting styles which he has used to blend his own brand of Roots music. The resulting unique sound has put his singles at the top of the Zambian charts during the height of the Zamrock phenomenon.

    Recorded at DB Studios and Multimedia Complex in Lusaka, the songs were recorded between in 1984-85, when Larry invited a few friends into the studio. His younger sister Trinity went with him just for fun and ended up singing the backing vocals on the tracks. Shortly after the recording, Maluma left for Australia in search of better opportunities.

    ‘Ulemu’ is in the Zambian language of Nyanja. It emphasises respect for people in different situations, and a warning that mocking others will one day backfire badly.

    Comes in limited full colour picture sleeve, only 500 pressed.
