New York Last night in New York the Thanksgiving weekend program at Ginny's Supper Club in Harlem featured a special Ethiopia-inspired dinner menu prepared by Chef Marcus Samuelsson followed by a live performance by classical Ethiopian pianist Girma Yifrashewa.
Girma's amazing concert on Sunday evening included his original compositions that evoke "Ethiopian melody making," as he told the audience, "decorated" with sounds of the classical music tradition in combination with Ambassel, Bati, Anchihoye and Tizita based on Ethiopian music's unique tone scale system.
