SOUND TRACKER - ETHIOPIA
Soloists: Sami Yaffa
Director: Otso Tiainen
Sami Yaffa is an accomplished musician who has seen all facets of life as a performing artist - he has toured the world in successful rock bands and earned a living as a street busker. Sound Tracker is his expedition to the world of music. Sami hunts down the original sound all the way to the horn of Africa! Arid and the beautiful land of opposites. Ethiopia is the musical treasure trove that will surprise even the most jaded explorer. With thousands of other pilgrims, Sami also attends the world’s oldest Christmas mass.
