Songlines recently caught up with the London based Krar Collective trio in the family-run Ethiopian restaurant, Muya, in North London, where they were lucky enough to catch the band in action and capture it on camera.
“I never expected to find this Ethiopian music gem hidden away in London. Krar Collective manage to achieve the right balance between the rawness of their roots and the subtleties of their innovative spirit. Precise without being too academic, funky without being too loose. I was really impressed.” (ANDY MORGAN, former manager of Tinariwen)
The band have their debut album Ethiopia Super Krar out now (available in our store) and will be touring the UK this autumn.
Krar Collective are featured in the new issue of Songlines.
