Discovering Zambia’s Artistic Heritage: Bwembya’s Market Opens Its Doors

Bwembya’s Market, a new business owned by Kena Bwembya and her husband Charles, is set to open its doors on April 11th at 10 a.m., showcasing art created by Zambian artists. The market will feature a variety of items such as jewelry and kitchenware from Zambia, with the primary focus being on displaying local Zambian art.

Charles, who hails from Zambia, mentioned that he wants to educate their neighbors about the rich culture and heritage of Africa, specifically from his home country. With the rise of social media and online content, many people have limited exposure to different countries and cultures beyond what they see online. The Bwembya’s want to offer a hands-on experience for their community to discover and appreciate the African culture right in their own backyard.

According to a report by Surface, a significant percentage of Africa’s cultural heritage is held outside the continent. Bwembya’s Market is one of the places working to change that narrative by sharing and preserving Zambia’s rich cultural history. By showcasing Zambian art and crafts, they aim to bridge the gap between continents and bring a piece of Zambia to their local community.

The grand opening promises to be an exciting opportunity for the community to explore and connect with the diverse artistry and craftsmanship from Zambia. Be sure to watch the video to see what they have to offer!
