'Yeleqeso Bet Chewata' is inspired by Girma Yifrashewa, the renowned Ethiopian pianist'w work.
In Ethiopia when a person loses their beloved ones, they will place a tent in front of their house and friends, neighbors and relatives come there for three days to mourn the deceased.
However these tents, 'Leqeso bet' is also about having fun, playing cards and making the grieving person forget their pain.
Both the first and the second time we had this tent at my house, I witnessed this rhythms if one may call it. A rhythm of life and joy with a smoke of sorrow and pain in between.
