VariousLuangwa To Livingstone – Music from Zambia – Chikunda, Nsenga, Soli, Cewa, Tonga, Ila, & Leya (4CD set) ... CD
SWP (Netherlands), 2020. New Copy 4CD ... $38.99
A wealth of recent recordings from the SWP label – an ethnographic powerhouse who are really furthering the sorts of material initially captured by earlier labels like Folkways or Ocora! The style here is very much like the latter – very faithful to the presentation, and very well-recorded – and there's also a clear social mission to really push deeper and farther – in this case well into the eastern side of Zambia's Luangwa province, which includes some musical styles and cultures that have never been recorded before! The set is huge – 4CDs with a tremendous amount of music – presented in a very cool book-styled cover, with copious notes – and separately themed CDs, with titles that include Southern Province Mix, Leya Ceremony & Songs, The Complete Kalonda Band Recordings, and Chikunda Nsenga Soli Cewa.

VariousMusic From Barotseland – Recordings In Zambia's Western Province – Lozi, Mbunda, Nkoya, & Luvale (4CD set) ... CD
SWP (Netherlands), 2020. New Copy 4CD ... $38.99
A massive collection of music from the Barotseland province of Zambia – all recorded recently, but with a clarity and classic style of presentation that rivals some of the classic releases on Ocora from the 60s! The 4CD set features four different slices of music from the area, all presented in a book-styled cover with plenty of notes – with instrumentation that includes thumb piano, guitar, xylophones, and plenty of percussion – captured in stripped-down spontaneous settings with really great fidelity – on separate titles that include The Barotse Guitar, Siyemboka Music, Drums Voices Sticks, and Kangombio Silimba Jazz. 56 tracks in all!

VariousZamgroove – Music From Zambia ... LP
SWP (Netherlands), 2020. New Copy ... $18.99
A nice range of different sounds from contemporary Zambia – a set that's got a partly ethnographic vibe, but which also features some electric instrumentation and more song-based work by a few different groups! The set begins with a mix of spare percussion and silimba xylophone from the duo of Crispin Mutanuka and Michael Baird – but then moves into two vocal tracks with kalimba lamellophone, guitar, and percussion – still spare, but tuneful overall. That spirit continues for the rest of the album – as other guitar/vocal tunes open up the sound! Percussionist Michael Baird is on most numbers, and also recorded the tracks – and titles include "Toninge Silami" by Lipa Band, "Cheeba Mabelo Abanakwe" by Crispin Mutanuka, "Titwe" by Mufrica Edward, and "Masholi" and "Musipili" by Libala Band.
