Asher Gamedze is a cultural worker based in Cape Town, working mainly as a musician, writer, organizer and an educator. With his band, he performed live during the opening night of Le Guess Who? 2022.
You can now listen to three tracks that the group performed live from their 'Dialectic Soul' album (2020): 'Eternality', 'Siyabulela' and 'Hope in Azania'; "music is meant to realign your spirit, to carry you from melancholy to utopia" was how NPR described the album. In addition, we've added two tracks from his brand new album 'Turbulence and Pulse'. Listen below:
