Description

 

Ethiopia has a very strong popular music culture. In the multi-ethnic provinces of Ethiopia, there is a very strong local scene mostly exposed through video clips they release.

Ethiopian “street songs” like  ‘Engurguro’, the telling of the Ethiopian parables, upsets, appreciation, and warning through song, were a traditional form of expression particularly popular as a means of political and other commentaries in a country that was without newspapers or other means of communication, dates back to centuries. The song was performed on group festivals, funeral arrangement, popular holidays and such events.

Presented by Hope Entertainment

Ethiopian music uses a wide range of traditional musical instruments such as ‘kebero’, ‘masinko’, ‘kirar’ and so on. More modern style instruments are often used in modern dance music. Modern professional musicians soon reached new heights of innovation in using Ethiopian instruments mixing with other instruments.

Betty G is the winner of  the annual African music magazine (AFRIMA) 2018 Award
