*Never heard a krar sound quite so much like its great-great-grandson the banjo.

Oh dang. Happy belated Halloween. Toward that end you’ll find magnificent vocalist Hirut Bekele flexing supernatural powers among a haunted organ. But this goes much deeper than cute accompaniment. There’s a stunning selection of compositions here. Spare but virtuosic orchestrations via krar and aforementioned organ create psychotropic room-filling sonics captured by the rough recording.

Another lovely recording gifted by our homie in Addis named Kidus, some of you may know him.

Extra credit: documentary about Hirut Bekele. Appreciate the stunning songs and rare footage despite your rusty Amharic.
