About WITCH

A pioneering Zambian psychedelic act, Witch (the name is an acronym, standing for We Intend To Cause Havoc) were one of the defining acts of Zamrock, a fusion of Western rock and rhythm & blues with traditional African sounds. They were among Zambia's most popular and influential bands in the 1970s as a wave of psychedelic and hard rock gained an audience in Africa. Witch's 1972 debut Introduction was the first commercial album released by a Zambian band, and they continued to release music until fading into dormancy in the mid-'80s. A reissue campaign launched in 2011 brought the band to a new generation of listeners, and Witch reunited in 2012 and was touring again shortly afterwards. In 2023, they released Zango, their first new album in almost 40 years.
