Abstract:Attempt at a macro-approach to the study of music and dance in Zambia - problems of judgement, basic artistic elements, musical instruments, dances and the social significance of music and dance. A description of the mazya (puberty ceremony dances) of the Nsenga people illustrates the integration of the arts and their use as a special mode of expression and dramatisation of social values.
