Interview with Kentiba Mekelle City Administration TeweledeBerehan Tesfalem - Jun 2015



Interview With Afar Regional State President-London 2015



When Iyasu and our nine brothers and sisters including Berhane Gano died many thought that was it- the advancement of music and art in Tigrai was dealt a severe blow! But, Meles told us Tigrai was capable to produce thousands of new artists that will follow the Berhane Gano's footstep. Looking back and seeing the many new upcoming artists since the death of Berhane and comrades we wonder how Meles saw the future when we were drowned with sorrow with a bleak future to say it out loud then! Will we see many more leaders like Meles also?
