Life and ministry

Hirut Bekele (or Hirut Beqele) is one of the most popular, beloved and famous Ethiopian singers back in [the] seventies. Her music is still very popular and is often an inspiration for young artists. Her personality as well as her unique music make her a real diva in the history of Ethiopian music. A magnificent vocalist, Hirut’s amazing voice intertwines with a haunted organ on some of her songs. She treats the listener to stunning compositions accompanied by virtuosic orchestrations via krar and organ, creating psychotropic room-filling sonics captured by the rough recording.
