"Culture is the heritage of us all. some may be more interested than others in the treasures of the past, but no one can fail to take a pride in his country's participation in the story of mankind, as represented in carvings, sculpture, music, paintings and the other arts. And there is a personal commitment to this, for no man can really say he is alone: we are all joined through our identity, with the cultures which are part of the mainstream of life"
- Simon Kapwepwe, Zambian Independence Freedom Fighter

"Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm" - Winston Churchill

"Try to be the rainbow in someone else's cloud" - Maya Angelou

"Your time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinion drown out your inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition" - Steve Jobs

Twit Tuesday: Zed Music

During the last Startup Hour, I had a chat with Head Honcho of the Black Rabbit Agency Muya and even though we have met up regularly during this monthly networking Happy Hour, I still have much to discover about this multi-talented Zed Creative.

I found out that one of his projects is the music magazine Music Xtra.  The goal is to have this be the industry's go to trade magazine to find out what is going on in the business, the current trends, new developments and future possibilities.  I was impressed by the content in the current issue which covers everything from the failiure of the new hologram system introduced to curb piracy of local artists' albums and to encourage fans to by authentic CDs, to artist interviews and articles and information about traditional drums explaining the relationship between the 3 types that form the ing'oma ensemble: the ichibitiku provides the lead drum beat that the sensele then complements and brings in the itumba the big drum.

Here are the tweets included in the mag that illustrate the issues facing the Zambian Music scene as well as praise voiced by artists, producers, media personalities and music fans:

I am excited to see how this magazine grows.  You can connect with Music Xtra on Facebook and Twitter and find out where you can get a copy of their magazine.
