Visited the recording studio where I met Sydney ( keyboard and guitar) and Luckson (sound engineer), both of whom are blind. They are working on Lazarus’s latest album ‘A Long Journey’. The music can be heard as and when the electricity is available. Lazarus himself had gone to Lusaka until Sunday to sing in a Christian festival. Luckson explained that Piracy is a huge problem in the music industry and there is no legislation in place to tighten things up. They do make money, but they ‘swat’ in one part of the recording studio and make music in the other. As accommodation, it seems very basic, but the two blind musicians are quite content. And, more importantly, the recording equipment seems to work.
