Evicted a local band which sounds international

Evicted on stage 
Evicted is a Zimbabwean Afro-rock Band, their music is a fusion of rock, funk and afro-beat grooves. The name Evicted came about after they were evicted from local rehearsal venues for being too loud. Their music has done well across the board; their most recent single "tomorrow" went viral on Facebook.

In an exclusive interview with OyOsNews they said, “We have travelled extensively outside of Zim and have always received positive reviews for our music and live shows. We are still trying to gain more widespread popularity, it takes time and persistence. We hope to keep releasing new music and to travel to new places around the world. Music has a way of bringing people together from different backgrounds; we hope to reach a very diverse audience with our sound.”

Founding members Derek Bailey, Nick Newbery and Adam Francis started the concept of Evicted.’With the aim of blending traditional Zimbabwean music genres such as Sangura and Chimurenga with rock, punk, reggae and funk, they began playing covers of popular local songs such as Andy Brown’s legendary ‘Mapurisa’, mixing them in with standard rock, reggae and funk classics.
