Arkestra Presents is delighted to launch with the thrill-seeking YellowWood Adventures for a night of Ethiopian music, food, art & travel in the heart of Brixton Market. Partnering with Ethiopian musicians, chefs and artists, we take you on a journey across a rich cultural heritage of sound, taste and vision.
Headline act Krar Collective brings a colourful feast of mind-blowing Ethiopian grooves. Led by Temesgen Zeleke, a former student of Ethiojazz legend Mulatu Astatke, Krar Collective perform a rootsy yet contemporary take on traditional music from Ethiopia based on other-worldly modes and driven by hypnotic rhythms.
London based Ethiopian Harar Restaurant serves four dishes on injera, the savoury pancake made from the super-grain teff, topped with a combination of vegetarian wats, roasted meats, spices and traditional flavours.
YellowWood Adventures specialises in adventure travel in Ethiopia where the company was founded three years ago. They offer a mixture of trekking holidays and cultural tours, tailoring adventures to suit you, regardless of hiking experience or age.
Your ticket will include Ethiopian cuisine, music, art and tales of adventure - perfect for the curios mind and intrepid soul.
Praise for Krar Collective:
“This London-based Ethiopian three-piece, centred on the traditional krar harp, were one of the grooviest and most hypnotic bands at Damon Albarn’s recent Africa Express bonanza.” Time Out
