Discover the psychedelic sounds of rock superstars WITCH in a guided tour beginning with their mud-hut village formation, through to their superstardom in politically-turbulent, 1970s Zambia, and eventual rediscovery by contemporary, Western music fans.

Vibrant and inspirational, WITCH: We Intend To Cause Havoc uncovers the true story of the leaders of the groundbreaking ‘Zamrock’ movement.

We journey through the band’s striking history with lead singer, Jagari (whose name is an Africanisation of Mick Jagger), as the sounds of The Rolling Stones and the British Invasion inspire WITCH to develop their own unique blend of heavy psychedelic rock and African rhythms, ultimately taking them to pinnacle of Zambia’s music scene.

WITCH: We Intend To Cause Havoc is a joyous celebration of life and music, directed by Gio Arlotta and featuring the members of WITCH, stars of the original Zamrock scene, and modern musician fans.
