We Intend to Cause Havoc! (WITCH)

Witch is a Zamrock band formed in the 1970s, during Zambia’s post-independence golden days, and widely seen as the most popular Zambian band of the time.

After a long hiatus, it was reborn in 2012, with lead vocalist Emanuel “Jagari” Chanda.

And yes, this is “Classic Rock”! Just think Rolling Stones…

(Jagger and Jagari sound the same…)
