March 1 has been proud to present the amazing life and career of Girma Yifrashewa, Ethiopian classical pianist and composer for several years. He was born in Addis Ababa on October 15, 1967, and first saw a piano at age 16, yet he overcame many obstacles to earn a Master's Degree in piano performance in Sofia, Bulgaria.
