Asher Gamedze & Xristian Espinoza

For South African drummer, social worker, and organizer Asher Gamedze, the pleasure of playing together is central to everything he does. The moment when work is no longer work and there is no striving according to capitalist laws for an end product that the employer can exploit, but the making happens purely for the sake of the process of making. In 2021 he made the fantastic improv album out side work with Xristian Espinoza and Alan Bishop for the influential label Astral Spirits. Together with Espinoza, he continues the adventure started on that record, but now live.
