Art and Music Tour

This tour is designed for professional artists and musicians who want to know and experience in depth the arts and music of Ethiopia.

The ancient civilization, old Christian and Muslim traditions and the untouched distinct African culture in the country make Ethiopia the home of culturally diverse people. Now days this wonderful unique tradition is close to vanish, we have to rescue it, we have to work closely with already existed and organized local band and at the same time we have to organize the local music band in the places they don’t have the local community band. Daniel and Frey Tour PLC has discovered this big potential with The African Express London and started to work on protection and development of Ethiopian Art and Music.
