The Nachil Pichen Kazembe / Super Mazembe collaboration

Super Mazembe's Shida featuring Samba Mapangala on vocal

 

 

 

 

 

 

The focus of my two Mazembe @ 45 RPM compilations was on the Super Mazembe singles that had not been previously released in LP or CD formats (see the Mazembe singles page for a breakdown). In that category, I found 21 singles on the Editions Mazembe label. However, I also found quite a number of singles on the Luapula label from Zambia in which Mazembe collaborated with Nashil Pichen Kazembe (NPK). He was a Zambian musician that who had well-established career in Kenya but was in Zambia in 1970 when he met up. with Super Mazembe (then known as Super Vox). He worked with Mazembe as a producer and manager in Zambia but he also came to have his own very successful career as a solo artist there. At NPK's suggestion, Super Mazembe left Zambia in 1974 and after moving through Tanzania arrived in Kenya by 1975. It's not clear whether NPK made the move to Nairobi with Mazembe but he was certainly there with them in 1975 when they recorded what became the Soul Poster singles: Samahani Catherine / Sikutaki Regena (SP 10509) and Rose Mwape / Impali (SP 10510), written by Nashil Pichen and produced by E.M.I. Kenya. Nashil Pichen continued to record a long series of singles with Super Mazembe in Nairobi, intended for the Zambian market on Teal Records' Luapula label.

I had the pleasure of currating this material for Stern's and AI Records and restoring audio tracks for two digial collections of Nashil Pichen Kazembe and Super Mazembe.
