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.
