“"Lumbanyeni Zambia"” (Stand and Sing of Zambia, Proud and Free)

"“Lumbanyeni Zambia"” was adopted as Zambia'’s national anthem in 1964, with music by Enoch Mankayi Sontonga. The melody, from the popular song "“God Bless Africa,"” is the same as that of Tanzania but with different lyrics. The melody is also incorporated into South Africa'’s anthem.
