This week we speak to Gabriel Teodros, musician, writer and activist.
To know that another world is possible, and bring it to life through music; this has always been the mission of emcee, educator and community organizer Gabriel Teodros. He made a mark with groups CopperWire, Abyssinian Creole and Air 2 A Bird, and reached an international audience with his critically-acclaimed solo debutLovework. He has set stages on fire all across the US, Canada, Mexico and Ethiopia; alongside the likes of Lupe Fiasco, Mos Def & Talib Kweli, Zap Mama, Kanye West, Digable Planets and Fishbone to name a few. Early 2012 saw the release of his newest solo project, Colored People’s Time Machine, as well as CopperWire’s Earthbound, a space opera of a hip hop ride (set in the year 2089) that Teodros recorded with fellow Ethiopian-American artists Meklit Hadero and Burntface.
