Ethiopian pianist and composer Girma Yifrashewa visited dublab to perform live and speak with Frosty about his music. His recent album, Love and Peace, on Unseen Worlds Records is one of our favorites. Girma’s music is a joyful expression of natural beauty and an invocation of joyful serenity. Girma is in Los Angeles to perform live in concert on Wednesday, March 25th. Click here for more information.
