Kibrom’s EP “Ethio-Qignit” was born out of Ethiopian traditional Scales (Qignit).

This piece of music was inspired by the love of Ethiopian Traditional Instruments and the different places that Kibrom had visited and lived in the past.

Kibrom widely expressed the traditional Ethiopian scales known as Tizita, Ambassel, Anchi Hoye, and Bati. Kibrom’s composition and piano performance alongside with Haddis Alemayehu's (HaddinQo) soaring notes on the Masinqo will take your breath away.

Special thanks to everyone who involved in this project, especially Etsegenet Mekonnen, Yamlu Molla, Hadinqqo, and Kamal de Iruretagoyena Humphrey.

All Glory to God!
