Changing Chibolya ~ Maiko Zulu's Music Mission

Another ear- and eye-opening BBC audio slideshow by Jo Fidgen, Kieron Humphrey and Paul Kerley on The Music of the Ghetto...
"Disease, deprivation and drugs are the realities of daily life in Chibolya -- a slum in the Zambian capital, Lusaka -- which has inspired reggae artist Maiko Zulu. Let him take you on a musical tour of the area..."
Maiko Zulu's clear-thinking, truth-speaking, and reality-minded, in my opinion. And one of the far too many Zambians oppressed by incompetent civic authorities (nevermind suffering from overzealous law enforcement and the immoral criminalization of narcotics.)
