Track info

Sunday morning in Arba Minch in the south of Ethiopia, Monks are chanting and praying up the hill at their church. It's 5:30 AM. This is my morning prayer. The banjo part was recorded direct into the recorder out in the hotel garden. I then went inside to over dub the flute part. The chanting of the monks came through my open window and was recorded along with the flute. The flute was given to me by my old friend, Rene Berblinger, when I was in Portland, Oregon in October 2008 two months before Ethiopia.
It is a two foot long bamboo.
