Asher Gamedze – Dialectic Soul 2xLP
'Dialectic Soul', the debut LP from drummer Asher Gamedze. 'Incredible' and 'LP of the Year' reviews are already arriving. Robin D.G. Kelley wrote that "it will render you completely incapacitated for the rest of the day. It's a piece of music that you'll not forget".
Asher introduces the themes that constitute the album; free drums representing autonomous African motion, the saxophone reflecting deeply & honestly on the violence of colonialism. The teachings of Coltrane, Biko, Makeba, Malcom & others inspire the music's positive manifestation of resistance.
"Fundamentally, it is about the reclamation of the historical imperative. It is about the dialect of the soul & the spirit while it moves through history. The soul is dialectic. Motion is imperative. We keep moving."
