Sofia Jernberg and Alexander Hawkins first performed together at Amsterdam's Bimhuis in October 2016, under the name Musho – an Amharic word meaning 'Sad Song'. Jernberg's work frequently takes her to the outer edges of vocal technique, including performances in contexts ranging from Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire to Mats Gustafsson's The End. Alexander Hawkins has been described as 'unlike anything else in modern creative music', and alongside his profile as a bandleader and composer, is a frequent collaborator in duo with Tomeka Reid, Nicole Mitchell and Angelika Niescier.

In this duo, they draw on their shared affinity for the music of Ethiopia, having both honed their languages in the company of musical elder statesmen from that country: Jernberg with Hailu Mergia, and Hawkins with Mulatu Astatke.

Musho moves quietly and seamlessly between abstract exploration and the immediacy of traditional Ethiopian song.

Tickets are available for 3200 HUF on the spot, online at, and at InterTicket Jegypont partners across Hungary.
