Hailing from London via Addis Ababa, Krar Collective bases its repertoire on traditional Ethiopian songs while creating a style unlike any music coming from Africa in recent years. With vocals, percussion, and a krar (lyre), Krar Collective is rooted in tradition, soaked with attitude, and rising in the world-music community.
