Following the achievement of independence from British colonialism, the drive to establish a new cultural heritage for Zambia led to the evolution of 'Zamrock', a new musical style which fused elements from Western music popular in the country –from folk to funk – with aspects of more traditional Zambian music.
Leading the charge in this musical revolution was WITCH, fronted by Emanuel Chanda. Riding to success on a wave of national pride and optimism through the 1970s, WITCH faded into obscurity as Zambia’s political and economic systems fell into chaos with the decade’s close.
A chance encounter with their music led director Gio Arlotta to champion the revival of the band and their music, now reissued on vinyl, in a charming and engaging documentary reminiscent of Malik Bendjelloul’s critically acclaimed Searching For Sugar Man (2012).
