Description

Dubbed ‘the Beatles of Zambia’ because of their immense popularity, WITCH’s brilliant garage, blues and psych-rock was at the centre of the explosive music scene in Zambia in the mid-’70s. 

 

At the peak of their popularity, the band often needed police to keep fans at bay while their lead singer Jagari - whose name is an Africanisation of Mick Jagger’s - riled up crowds.

 

Now, with a new lineup that is international and inter-generational, they are reviving and re-invigorating ‘Zamrock’, a riotous rock’n’roll sound infused with hevay African percussion. The story of WITCH (We Intend To Create Havoc) is also the story of Zamrock itself.

 

This is a 'Pay What You Wish' performance. 

Part of ΩHM 2024.

 

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and Crumpler

Supported by Live Music Australia - an Australian Government initiative.
