Selam! SAlam! Shalom!


I have a new album on Soundway Records ::
It is called Bahir and is co-produced by Carlos Niño ::
It is my follow-up to Wondem ::
Bahir is a ubiquitous word that means “sea” in the Semitic languages
Amharic, Arabic, Tigrinya and Hebrew ::
Bahir also means “spring time” in the Cushitic language Somali
and Bahir Dar is a beautiful port city on Lake Tana in Northern Ethiopia ::
The album’s East African fusion sound
features many of my old and new friends ::
Order the vinyl or digital album on Bandcamp ::
Or stream the single or album on Spotify ::
I appreciate YOU ::
