Krar Collective with Dalmar Yare and Fartun Omar (FREE!)
Mind-blowing Ethiopian grooves. Dazzling krar (a harp-like instrument), kebero drums and stunning vocals. Rooted in tradition; soaked with attitude. The unstoppable trio known as the Krar Collective, dubbed 'the White Stripes of Ethiopia' for their minimalist, yet rock-informed sound, base their repertoire on traditional Ethiopian songs, but have have created a unique style by radically reworking the material that propels ancient traditions, and bringing the music into the here and now. Vocals are full of collective cadences and long solo poems; musical stops and starts create an organic syncopation, and the krar can alternate seamlessly as lead or rhythm instrument.
Dalmar Yare and Fartun Omar, members of Waayaha cusub, will open.
No tickets required or available; simply come the night of the show, subject to capacity.
