WITCH back in Berlin with their Zambian funk rock


WE INTEND TO CAUSE HAVOC. The name said it all: during the band’s heyday in the 1970s, it was not uncommon for the police to be called in to keep the ecstatic crowd reasonably in line. The inventors of Zamrock, a style that crossed rock n roll with African funk, swept through Zambia in the 1970s before recession, totalitarian politics and HIV brought their era to an abrupt end. Emanyeo »Jagari« Chanda is the only founding member of the band who did not die as a result of HIV.

No rotten bones

Jagari is now playing again. The reissue of his music via the Stones Throw offshoot Now-Again brought him back on stage. With unbroken charisma and a new band. The Gretchen booked WITCH a year ago – after the concert was so great, the next Berlin gig is now on the agenda. On August 7, 2024 the time has come. The police are not expected.
