WITCH: We Intend To Cause Havoc (2019, Czech Republic / Italy) Review

WITCH: We Intend To Cause Havoc (2019, Czech Republic / Italy) Review

At the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia (otherwise known as PZYK) I was introduced to Zamrock – a musical subgenre that combined African rhythm and sound with psychedelic rock – and arguably the most successful Zambian band of the 1970s: WITCH (an acronym for We Intend To Cause Havoc). Under the leadership of charismatic lead vocalist Emanuel “Jagari” Chanda, WITCH dominated the PZYK stage from the moment the band re-introduced themselves during ‘Introduction’.

“I had no idea where Zambia was, or how such incredible music could be recorded there, by what looked like a bunch of misfits.”
