Music in Exile presents the debut 12" single from Chikchika 

  • Pressed to Classic Black vinyl
  • Released on Music In Exile
  • Recorded by Dale Gorfinkel
  • Mixed and mastered by John Lee

Anbessa Gebrehiwot and Haftu Red, masterful players of krar and masinko, traditional string instruments from Eritrea and Ethiopia.

Now based in Melbourne, Australia, the pair collaborate with producer and multi-instrumentalist Dale Gorfinkel to create an innovative sound that celebrates their East African culture.

The five recordings collected here range from modern takes on folk songs to new, original compositions, with Anbessa’s strong vocal presence a perfect match to Haftu’s sweet lyrical modesty.
