QWANQWA: Music as Universal Language

7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Whitney Library


QWANQWA is a supergroup of musicians from the baddest ensembles of Addis ababa.
Brought together by a shared passion for the power of Ethiopian music, this group shines an experimentalism based in the virtuosity of rooted traditions. With swirling mesenko (one-stringed fiddle), wah-wah-violin, bass krar boom, and the unstoppable rhythm of heavy kebero (goat-skin drum) beats, powerful traditional lead African diva vocals, QWANQWA keeps the people wrapped in celebratory attention. This world traveling ensemble is hitting the road for a MacArthur Foundation backed Debut US tour in 2022

Free and Open to the public
