In the spirit of the EU – Zambian Partnership, the Team Europe together with Zambians celebrated the festive season with a beautifully and artistically performed Christmas carol merging the European and Zambian timeless classics ‘Silent night, Holy night’, composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber to lyrics by Joseph Mohr, and ‘Happy Christmas, Happy New Year’, recorded in 1960 by Mabel Mafuya.

The Song was produced and performed by a group of Zambian artists representing different styles of music, thus giving the song its originality. By joining various vocal forces and with that perfectly fitted Euro-Zambian fusion, this piece of music has shown the creativity, connectivity, and partnership.
