New Single from Zambian Legends WITCH titled "Waile"

Years back a friend burned a CD of the Zambian band WITCH for RtBE and we loved it. Now it turns out that band is releasing a new single title "Waile".

The Zamrock legends We Intend To Cause Havoc always had a cool mix of the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix Experience and pysch-rock with the band turning up the more disco tendencies in the 80's. Two original members are still in the group, original lead singer Emmanuel ‘Jagari’ Chanda and Patrick Mwondelathe. 

Check out the newest single "Waile" below, from Mwondelathe regarding the single:
“Waile was one of the songs that I brought to the WITCH when I joined in 1978” continues keys genius Patrick Mwondela. “While it was played live often back in the day, it was never recorded until the new formation of the band picked it up 43 years later during a rehearsal on an island in Kenya, where the band embraced it and made it their own. A few months after that, they gave it a new lease of life by recording it in Lusaka’s legendary dB Studios (site of the original WITCH 70s recordings). Sang in my native language Luvale, the subject matter is a nostalgic wailing for home of ancient African tribes that would eventually settle in Zambia.”
