Tracklist: 1. Born in Addis Ababa in 1967, Girma Yifrashewa is a worthy new torchbearer of African pianism. His highly personalized approach to the piano likens him to Ethiopian composer Emahoy Tsege Mariam, while his use of Ethiopian pentatonic scale within the Western Art Music format places his compositions in conversation with more academically minded work. Traditionally Ethiopian in melody, cinematic in vision, and deep in beauty, his compositions occupy a lyrical middle ground between classical and jazz that is supremely listenable yet defies easy classification.

Girma, born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on October 15th, 1967, learned to play the kirar, a harp-like traditional Ethiopian instrument, early in his youth. At the age of 16, he learned to play the piano, and earned his performance degree after four years of study at the Yared School of Music in Addis Ababa. With a five-year stipend from the Ethiopian government, he studied music at the State Conservatory of Music in Sofia and received his masters degree.
