Drawing their inspiration from traditional Cuban son, seven young musicians came together in the 1990s to create music with a contemporary edge that also maintained the feeling of the songs performed by their forefathers. Staying true to an acoustic base they developed a fresh sound with inventive songwriting and a soulful groove. Across four albums and many tours, they have continued to experiment and evolve. Since 2006 they have been working on a collaborative project with legendary drummer Billy Cobham. Unfazed to be writing and performing alongside the man who once worked with Miles Davis and whose story reads like a history of modern music, Asere have been honing their skills and growing through the experience, eager to explore new horizons. What comes next will surely be interesting.
