Yegna, an act being marketed as “Ethiopia’s first girl group.” The group is made up of five women, each representing an Ethiopian female “type” (the humble country girl, the flashy city girl, the tom-boy, for example). In addition to making music, they star in a radio drama and host a talk show about youth-related issues. They recently performed a big debut concert in Ethiopia where all you had to do to attend was “be a girl or bring a girl.” Across their various platforms, everything Yegna does has a really high production value. Their hit song “Abet” starts with a kind of R&B take on the Ethiopian pop sound and wraps up with a funky house section (corresponding with an obligatory dance circle scene in the song’s well-done video).
