Hailu Mergia & Dahlak Band


Music can inspire, and a lot of the previous songs do just that, stopping you in your tracks and making you forget what you were doing.  But that is not the reason I listen to Hailu Mergia, an Ethopian jazz keyboardist, and his song Sintayehu. 

When we have drudged through the design process, thick with problem solving and careful proportioning, songs like this propel us forward, into the labor intensive, active world of hand craftsmanship.
