Asher Gamedze and his ensemble – featuring Thembinkosi Mavimbela, Robin Fassie-Kock and Abraham Mennen – will play music from the 2020 album Dialectic Soul as well as some brand new compositions from an unreleased album. Some of the ideas informing the music include the struggle against colonialism and the reality that resistance is always in a state of emergence. These ideas and more will be discussed after the performance by Asher in conversation with long time unionist and jazz buff, Dinga Sikwebu.
Asher Gamedze is a cultural worker currently based in Cape Town, South Africa,
working with/in various collectives as a musician, student, a writer, an organiser and an educator.
