I have heard many English songs on conservation and environmental awareness which did stir up emotions within me. But, listening to one in my own tongue is a totally different feeling. I felt I could resonate with the message and it really touched my heart. It was also worth noting that there were so many languages on it, about five I think; all coming from different part of Zambia. I am so excited that such a message can reach the Zambians not fortunate enough to get educated and learn a foreign language.
Having collaborated with Conservation Music I have personally seen the positive impact of their work on the ground. A unique concept in environmental education and awareness that inspires and energizes local communities to take action. On top of that we’re also gifted with original music!
An excellent initiative! Music is one powerful tool that speaks to our need as humans to connect. And it can only be a cause as big as life itself when people and artists connect to save the planet – that’s Conservation Cusic.
We love collaborating, sharing, and discussing with like-minded people! We would love to connect on any of the platforms above.
