Product Description

The incredible return (after nearly 40 years!) of WITCH (We Intend To Cause Havoc), who pioneered the Zamrock genre in the 70s by fusing African rhythms and instrumentation with heavy Sabbathian riffs, James Brown funk and bluesy pychedelia. Reincarnated by original bandleader Emmanuel “Jagari” Chanda, who unites with later member Patrick Mwondela and a fresh band including Nico Mauskoviç (Altin Gun), JJ Whitefield (Madlib Invazion) and Jacco Gardner.

Returning to the very same studio in Zambia where their classic Lazy Bones LP was recorded in 1975, WITCH emerge with an album steeped in their own legacy but focussed ahead and outward, reinforced by a female presence absent from Zamrock's first wave in the form of collaborators Theresa Ng’ambi, Hanna Tembo, and Sampa The Great. Keith Kabwe, the unmistakable voice of Amanaz, also makes an appearance!
