재거리: 잠비아 록밴드의 전설

We Intend to Cause Havoc

Italy, Czech Republic | 2019 | Asian | 89min | DCP | Color | Documentary

Program Note

Buena Vista Social Club (1999) was the first in a series of films about nameless musicians—many of whom went on to perform for audiences worldwide. Although the portrayal of Western influence as beneficial deserves criticism to a certain extent, it is difficult to ignore the joy of encountering musicians and culture that should be known in the wider world.

 

We Intend to Cause Havoc introduces Zamrock, a popular trend of rock music that thrived in Jamaica in the 1970s. WITCH (an acronym for We Intend To Cause Havoc) were the most popular band during the Zamrock era. Now, with the band’s vocalist Jagari as their front man, they embark on a European tour. African music is known to have influenced rock, and therefore it is surprising to learn about the development of African music under the influence of Western psychedelic rock. (LEE Yong-cheol)
