Three String Fret-less Banjo
This banjo piece was recorded in the garden of the hotel where I stayed in Arba Minch, Ethiopia, December 2008.
I was there for the Festival of a Thousand Stars to assist a team from Israel led by Assif Tsahar. The team was filming a documentary on the festival and doing the sound tech for it.
The music of the 57 tribal groups that performed inspired me toward thinking more concerning simplicity of playing. This was recorded early in the morning on a Sunday. It is also used in the construction of “Morning Prayers.”
