Presented by Town Hall Global Rhythms and Earshot Jazz

An evening of swirling, jangling musical transport to the North African forebears and modern-day kinfolk of jazz! Qwangwa (“language” in Amharic) boasts four of the finest instrumentalists on the Addis Ababa scene, all also veterans of decidedly untraditional performance in the West with the likes of Paal Nilssen-Love, Fred Frith, and Butch Morris: Misale Legesse on kebero goat-skin drum; Mesele Asmamaw on krar, a bowl-shaped lyre; Anteneh Teklemariam on bass krar; and Endris Hassan on masinko bowed lute—plus longtime American resident of Addis, Kaethe Hostetter, on five-string violin.

*COVID-19 PolicyTown Hall Seattle: Masking by all patrons, presenters, and employees remains required inside the venue, except while actively eating or drinking. Full policy here.
