"Zamrock 'n' Roll

The band started in 1975, and was lead by Paul Dobson Nyirongo (a.k.a. Paul Ngozi) who was know for his spectacular stage antics, that included playing the guitar with his teeth. They were the first band to be called 'Zamrock'.

Ngozi Family was one of the most prolific bands in Zambia at that time and started in 1975 and rocketed to stardom in a period that is hailed as the golden age of Zambian music.
The Ngozi Family music is also best remembered for his witty and poignant lyrics that reflected the life and times of Zambians.

Paul Ngozi was adored by Zambian music lovers. His music is also best remembered for his poignant lyrics that reflected the life and times of Zambians. He won many awards and represented zambian music in both Europe and the United States, and even went on a controversial tour of south Africa at the height of the Apartheid era." [sic]
