The project was formed in early 2016, leading to their debut album later that year ‘Wisdom of Elders’; a document of sessions combining Hutchings with a
group of South African jazz musicians he’d long admired. His connection to the
group was Mandla Mlangeni (bandleader of the Amandla Freedom Ensemble),
whom he’d flown there to play with over the past few years.
We Are Sent Here by History is a meditation on the fact of our coming
extinction as a species. It is a reflection from the ruins, from the burning. A
questioning of the steps to be taken in preparation for our transition
individually and societally if the end is to be seen as anything but a tragic
defeat. For those lives lost and cultures dismantled by centuries of western
expansionism, capitalist thought and white supremist structural hegemony the
end days have long been heralded as present with this world experienced as an
embodiment of a living purgatory.
