Muzikawi a new Ethiopian music company that aims to take Ethiopian creatives to the global market, said it has organized its first digital concert.
“After two successful seasons we are back with an updated season of Live & Close Up. We give you seven full concerts of finest quality. Opening this season we have none other than Esubalew Yetayew (Yeshi) going live on Muzikawi’s YouTube Channel on April 6th 2022,” the company said in its press statement.
“This season’s artist line-up is curated by the renowned composer and musician Jorga Mesfin. With him he brought some of Ethiopia’s most established musicians to accompany the artists exclusively for Live & Close Up.”
The statement noted that Muzikawi is built on 17 years of experience in Ethiopian music culture combined with 25 years of international music industry experience.
“Every week from April 1st and throughout 2022 we will present 16 artists and more than 100 releases,” the company stated.
The concept started as a remedy to the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on the Ethiopian culture sector. A complete standstill of the local Ethiopian concert scene was one of the suffered consequences for both musicians and live audiences.
Muzikawi initiated Live & Close Up, a digital venue with doors open not only to Ethiopian music lovers but also to the world. Through trying times Live & Close Up give artists and the music audience a place to connect and maintain their relationship
