This was through some music of well known artists like Pk Chishala,Paul Ngozi, Amayenge, Blue Jeans ,Joyce Nyirongo Dickson Mponda etc. This act is still happening in our Zambian Society today,some artists have been teaching about culture to all generations through their music and they maintain that, culture brings about identity and a sense of belonging.
