London African Festival
Amharic singer and traditional krar player Haymanot Tesfa was born and raised in Ethiopia and is emerging as a rising star on the world music scene. Her music is inspired by deep reflection on the dramatic ancient landscapes and meditative social & religious music of her Ethiopian roots, the sound of Haymanot’s voice is t he true song of a free spirit, fearless and intensely experimental. The songs Tezeta and Ambassel are the first recordings in a series of vibrant new interpretations of iconic traditional Ethiopian songs that will be released as her debut solo album CD later this year.
For the performance Haymanot will be accompanied by Mina Mikhael Salama and Arian Sadr.
