Refugee Week Launch at the V&A Museum – Haymanot Tesfa

Haymanot Tesfa will be launching her debut album ‘Loosening of Strings’ with this performance in V&A’s Devonshire Hunting Tapestries room. Haymanot’s music is inspired by the ancient landscapes and meditative social & religious music of her Ethiopian roots. The sound of Haymanot’s voice is fearless and intensely experimental, and we can’t wait to experience it in this beautiful but haunting gallery.

“ Ethiopian singer Haymanot Tesfa’s range is extraordinary – at times deep and powerful, underpinning the rest of the music, and at times dancing across the top of it. People close their eyes, the better to listen and pick out the different strands of the music.” Catriona Troth

“Loosening the Strings” is out beginning of June 2019.

Part of our PRS Foundation funded ‘Music for Social Change’ project.
