Gigi

gigi_at_beach

Unfortunately, Gigi’s artist name is a bit too common, so searching for her music can be a tad more difficult than other artists, but I found it to be worth it.

I’m sure if she went by her full, Ethiopian name – neé Ejigayehu Shibabaw – it’d be much easier to find her work. She’s been singing professionally for at least the last 10 years and is quite popular in her home.

She resides in New York now and has played with some of the real jazz legends like Pharaoh Sanders and Herbie Hancock. But like Bebel Gilberto, who I wrote about recently, I found her music to be extremely compelling.

Here’s a homemade video for one of her more popular songs, “Gud Fella.” When I first heard her, it was the song “Enoralehn.” I couldn’t find this song anywhere to include, but the “Gud Fella” song is just as good. Check it out…
