Former Zembani Band artist Apatsa Kwilimbe has released his debut, Pompopompo.
Kwilimbe, son to veteran cultural enthusiast and musician Benard Kwilimbe, said the 15-track album was released from Ralph Ching’amba’s Ralph Records Studios.
“There is romance in my music. You can catch drifts of gospel and reggae touches in the music. I look forward to launch the album by the end of this month,” said Kwilimbe, an adept player of several instruments.
Kwilimbe used to rock fans during his time at Zembani where he used to interchange playing the drums, bass and rhythm guitars and percussions. That is, not mentioning the vocals and one song he used to perform was Koma Iwe, which is in the album.
“I was born in a music family. I owe it all to dad, who taught me a lot about music and I used to perform in his band, The Rain Seekers before I performed with Skeffa Chimoto and four years at Zembani were enough experience. Now I have my own band, Mafuko Reggae Band,” said Kwilimbe.
The album has other tracks, including Nkokoma, Koma Iwe, Bwenzi Langa, Ndiwochepa and Ndikunena Za Moyo.
