hahahahahahahahah

bodyguard!

it has been a lot of fun. wish you were all here. there's still a lot of work to do and i'll bring my promotional material with me!!

i'm taping as much and taking pictures as much as possible! apparently our live shows for the ethiopian music festival (on girma beyene) have been on t.v. and people are excited... and i'm slowly getting paranoid... strangers say hello. not sure what to do yet! unfortunately, electricity has been off on those days of the t.v. programming in our house - so i don't know what's going on!! hehehehe...

but yea... a little overwhelmed... nervous... excited... happy...

see you all soon

thanks for all the love!!

REVIEW by Arefe
It was a low-key musical affair yet an immensely enjoyable experience for the mostly young audience at Hager Fikir Theatre. Two young musicians, one a US-based Ethiopian female vocal singer and a German guitar player, took the stage at the huge, high-ceilingled hall. There wasn’t any flashy or heavy instrument-just the tow of them-Jorg and Munit, with of course their guitar.
It was Munit who did the introduction with her stammering but proper Amharic, at times mixing with English. She had an aura of simplicity and homour. She told us that she was having a cold, so she might produce some bizarre sounds, she warned us. Jorg was also having flu, she told us to beware, because “nifit” might come anytime. It was a little cheeky but the audience roared.
The first line of song they played was Bob Marley’s rendering of “Jamming”. It was enjoyable and fairly upbeat. The next one, “Just the two us” the cover song for their CD which was on sale at the entrance. The audience seemed unable to settle on response to the music at this early stage and a mixture of reaction were seen.
As the atmosphere progresses, the crowd entertained with a mixture of original and time tested favourtie music.
One of the songs, “I remember” which Munit said was her first full Amharic song conjures up childhood memory, like drinking Pepsi and watching Ababa Tesfaye on ETV. There was a hint of sadness in her voice as she recalls those times passed. Other songs include Tracy Chapman’s “Give Me one Reason”. But my favourite one was an interpretation of Girma Beyene’s “Set Alaminm” which Munit understandably changed in to “Wonde Alaminm”. It beautifully displayed Munit’s talent for soft, fluid vocals.
The music style expresses childhood innocence and simplicity. This style can be witnessed in “Lem Lem.”
I feel some of the songs need some more work and practice but all in all the two deserve respect and attention.
Jorg and Munit’s C.D ..just the two of us, recorded live at @ the Coffee House could be found at Irea Music shop in Kazanchis.

Thanks for sharing Tse! I wouldn't have found it without you!

YAY I'm glad he had a good time --- FYI no "nift" dribbled on the guitar and I tried to limit all strange noises!

We did have a fun moment when the guitar string broke --- but an acapella redemption song moment saved the day!

Also it's the game pepsi - not drinking pepsi

what else? it was an awesome chill young ethiopian crowd that was very nice and laid back. totally fun to play with!

Also for amharic readers - another more in-depthish article about me hehehe - self-promotion is strange

http://www.addisadmass.com/Tibeb/news_item.asp?NewsID=966

I don't know how to cut and paste the amharic without it turning into gibberish... so you will have to read it there...

ENJOY!
