Lukwesa ne Ciwa – The story of Lukwesa and Iciwa: musical storytelling of the Bemba of Zambia

  • Joseph Ng'andu (a1) and Anri Herbst (a2)

Abstract

This article describes inshimi – a musical storytelling practice of the Bemba people in Zambia. It gives a general perspective on the whole practice and some details on the ‘MUSIC’ as contained in the practice. The article further encourages the idea that inshimi represents a nucleus of the ‘MUSIC’ practices of the Bemba people and therefore plays a vital role in the transmission of musical arts practices. Embedded in musical storytelling are educational principles that could and should guide musical arts education in Africa and the rest of the world.
