Led by Temesgen Zeleke, a former star pupil of Ethiopian legend Mulatu Astatke, Krar Collective perform a rootsy yet contemporary take on traditional music from Ethiopia based on other-worldy modes and driven by hypnotic rhythms. The 6-stringed krar lyre is associated with the azmari minstrel tradition; in the hands of Zeleke it becomes a gritty, ancient rock guitar. Accompanied just by drums and fronted by the stunning, soaring voice of Genet Assefa, Krar Collective create a surprisingly big sound, leading one critic to name them 'The Ethiopian White Stripes'. With a varied repertoire from gentle ballads to high-energy dance tunes, Krar Collective are set to surprise and delight.
