As Sara mentions below, Gabriel Teodros and Khingz, who collectively come together to form the duo Abyssinian Creole, will be performing tonight at Chop Suey. Teodros will be journeying to Ethiopia in December as a member of the Arbaminch Collective, a group of performing and creative artists of Ethiopian descent who live in North America. While preparing to participate in that collective, he has also been working on his follow-up to 2007's Lovework, entitled Colored People's Time Machine.
I look forward to asking him more about his trip and the experiences he anticipates, as well as talking to him about his reflections on how the hip-hop community has evolved over the years since he released his last album. This will be the last weekly twitterview for the foreseeable future, so make sure to tune in, either on Twitter (@gabrielteodros & @swreverb) or in the live feed below.
