KRAR COLLECTIVE are an extraordinary Ethiopian ThreePieceBand based in London, with Temesgen Zeleke on the Krar Harp, Kebero drums played by Grum Begashaw, and the wonderfully ecstatic vocals of Genet Assefa. I have long been a huge admirer, and lover, of Ethiopian music, which has been, and continues to be, a great inspiration and delight to me. Krar Collective are utterly one of my utterly favourite groups!
OLCAY BAYIR is a singer of Turkish-Kurdish origin, who draws both on her re-interpretation of the songs and sounds of Anatolia, Mesopotamia, and the Mediterranean, along with performing her own compositions. The first time I heard her work, I was deeply mesmerised and deeply moved. Her music, like her voice, is as Haunted as the Air.
