Muntu's Valdo music is rooted in the blues. He has played with some of the great names of African music including Ali Farka Touré and Manu Dibango, toured with Ladysmith Black Mambazo and explored exciting new collaborations with the likes of Damon Albarn's Africa Express.
'He resembled a youthful, latter-day Bob Dylan' - The Financial Times.

Krar Collective serve up a colourful feast of mind-blowing Ethiopian grooves based on other-worldly modes and driven by hypnotic rhythms. The traditional acoustic krar lyre associated with the azmari minstrel tradition becomes a gritty, ancient rock guitar.
Accompanied just by traditional kebero drums and fronted by stunning vocals, Krar Collective with a minimal line up create a surprisingly full band sound, leading them to be dubbed 'The Ethiopian White Stripes'.
