Witch - Waile 7"
Witch - Waile 7" (Desert Daze Sound/USA)
WITCH was the first band in Zambia to release a commercial album — 1973’s Introduction. Blending the rock and roll sounds of the late 60’s and early 70’s together with more traditional, African rhythms, WITCH pioneered a new genre dubbed Zamrock, and during their brief, yet prolific early existence, WITCH (an acronym for We Intend To Cause Havoc) released 7 albums and were the most revered band in the country.
“Waile” is WITCH’s first new song since 1984, and their first with original frontman & co-founder Emmanuel “Jagari” Chanda since 1977. The b-side is titled “Waile (Midnight Version)”. While on tour in the UK, the band took the original stems from “Waile” and remixed them, adding synths and more in studio. The track was produced by Jacco Gardner.
