Sunfest Concert: Krar Collective from Ethiopia

Sunfest opens its 2015- 2016 Concert Season with the Krar Collective from Ethiopia (now residing in London, England). The Krar Collective serves up a colourful feast of mind-blowing Ethiopian grooves. led by Temesgen Zeleke, a former student of Ethiojazz legend Mulatu Astatke, Krar Collective perform a rootsy yet contemporary take on traditional music from Ethiopia based on other-worldly modes and driven by hypnotic rhythms. The traditional acoustic krar lyre is associated with the azmari minstrel tradition; electrified, in the hands of Zeleke it becomes a gritty, ancient rock guitar. Accompanied just by traditional kebero drums and fronted by stunning vocals, Krar Collective with a minimal line up create a surprisingly full band sound, leading them to be dubbed ‘The Ethiopian White Stripes’
