Krar Collective / DJ Dan Ofer @ The Cellar, Oxford
Friday 14 November 2014, 10:00 pm - 3:00 am
£7 (advance) / £8 (door)
A contemporary take on the colourful traditional music of Ethiopia based on other-worldly musical modes and driven by hypnotic rhythms. Led by Tamesgen Zeleke – a former student of Ethio-jazz legend Mulatu Astatke – his krar lyre is electrified and turned into a gritty, ancient rock guitar, accompanied by kabero drums and fronted by stunning vocals. They have been dubbed “The White Stripes of Ethiopia” and for this gig they will be beefed up by a funky three-part horn section.
