Munit and Jörg (Ethiopia)  
Munit and Jorg
MUNIT and Jörg have been creating a most unique, exciting and energized blend of Ethio-Acoustic Soul music in Addis Abeba, around Ethiopia and the world!

Since the duo formed in 2007, they have had a great journey entertaining thousands of people and performing in all the best jazz and world clubs and theatres in Addis Abeba and globally.

With just one voice and one guitar, their performances take their audience on a journey, as Munit’s voice soars in perfect harmony and beat with the rhythmic strumming and drumming of Jörg’s playing, creating a positive and uplifting vibration in their dynamic shows!

vocals, guitar (acoustic / semi-acoustic)
Genre: traditional / indigenous, African
