Mind-blowing Ethiopian grooves. Dazzling Krar, kebero drums and stunning vocals. Rooted in tradition. Soaked with attitude. Krar Collective are Temesegen Zeleke on the krar (a 5 or 6 stringed harp), singer Genet Asefa and drummer Grum Begashaw. The unstoppable trio, dubbed “the White Stripes of Ethiopia” for their minimalist rocky sound, base their repertoire on traditional Ethiopian songs, but have created a unique style with timeless appeal.
