Emahoy Sheet Music Project

While surfing the net, I found an interesting interview/article about a sheet music project led by Mary Sutton, a pianist, composer and music teacher, who aimed at bringing Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou’s music to a wider audience. Ms. Sutton says of Emahoy’s music, Mother’s Love, “it felt like being wrapped up in a warm duvet. I became obsessed by the song…”
