Gamo – “Sabo”


October 10, 2023
Negarit Band
Producer: Teferi Assefa
Number of discs: 1

“Sabo” is another example of the rich musical heritage of the Gamo people, which each member of the community partakes from at a very early age. “Sabo” is performed by adolescent girls who taunt other girls from their neighborhood to join them in an annual music and dance competition with girls from other neighborhoods. If a neighborhood girl does not join them, the girls at her gate will shame her by singing “Sabo” song.
