Zamrock emerged in the 1970s in Zambia as a combination of Jimi Hendrix's psychedelic rock and James Brown's funk. Rikki Ililonga & Musi-O-Tunya are generally credited as the creators of this music genre. Other notable artists include WITCH,[1] The Peace, Amanaz, Chrissy "Zebby" Tembo, Paul Ngozi and his Ngozi Family among others.[2]

Zamrock's roots can be traced back to the 1950s with northern singers from the Copperbelt Province such as Stephen Tsotsi Kasumali, William Mapulanga and John Lushi.
