    QWANQWA is a supergroup of musicians from the baddest ensembles of Addis Ababa.Brought together by a shared passion for the power of Ethiopian music, this group shines an experimentalism based in the virtuosity of rooted traditions.  With swirling mesekno (one-stringed fiddle), punk krar solors (electric lyre), wah-wah-violing, bass krar boom, and the unstoppable rhythm of heavy kebero (goat-skin drum) beats, powerful traditional lead African diva vocals, Qwanqwa keeps the people wrapped in celebratory attention.  After making a splash at world renowned festivals and with two European tours under their belt, this world traveling ensemble is coming to America!
