137tv Live Session: Mathew Tembo – Mpala Mamba

7th August 2017

The second of two videos Hylu filmed whilst in Zambia last year (2016) features Mathew Tembo. He met Mathew in Lusaka and drove out to the hills of Chilanga to film this live version of Mpala Mamba. Mathew is an outstanding Kalimba player and here he is both playing the instrument and singing in Nsenga, a language spoken in the eastern part of Zambia. The lyrics talk about asking the creator to cleanse him.
