Krar Collective – NCEM

So i don’t know where else in York you are going find such a range of interesting, unexpected and high quality global artists!?

The NCEM, in their partnership with Making Tracks, have brought some great world music acts to the city over the last couple of years and continue to do so.

The Krar Collective on Friday 5 October at 7:30pm should be no exception. From the NCEM publicity:

Krar Collective perform a rootsy yet contemporary take on traditional music from Ethiopia based on other-worldy modes and driven by hypnotic rhythms. Led by krar virtuoso Temesegen Zeleke, a former star pupil of veteran Ethiopian legend Mulatu Astatke, fronted by the stunning, soaring voice of Genet Assefa and accompanied

by innovative drummer Amare Mulugeta, 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 is set to surprise and delight.
