Kalambo hit parade star buried 

Mbala, January 19, 2015, ZANIS– Government has described the late veteran musician and founder of kalambo Hit Parade, James Siame as a gallant musician whose artistic works will be missed by many Zambians.


Mbala District Commissioner Best Kabulembe said Siame was a great musician whose songs had a rich message to both the young and the older generation to promote Mambwe – Lungu cultures.


He was speaking at the burial of Siame at Mutambalike cemetery .


Siame died last Saturday in Mbala General Hospital after an illness.


And Mr. Kabulembe told hundreds of mourners that Siame will be remembered for the hit songs like; Mpanga-yamambwe, Ngawatemwisha Mama  and Mpangayaulungu, among other songs.


The Mpanga-yamambwe song is still a hit played frequently on most local radio stations in the country and helped put the Mambwe-Lungu culture on the lime light.
