OTHER MUSIC IN-STORE FEATURING VICTOR GAMA
On Monday, August 8th, Other Music will be hosting a very special in-store performance by internationally acclaimed Angolan artist, composer, and instrument builder, VICTOR GAMA. Gama is the only non-electronic artist to be signed to Aphex Twin's Rephlex label, and this will be his very first visit to the United States. Since the early-'90s, Gama has been constructing an impressive array of finely handcrafted and beautiful homemade instruments upon which he performs mesmerizing compositions, influenced not only by his own Angolan folk traditions but also those of the entire African diaspora. Gama is one of the most innovative instrument builders since Harry Partch, and this event should prove to be quite unlike any other OM ever hosted.
