A Nun's Legacy

A documentary film on Emahoy Tsegue Maryam Guebrou

Intriguing numbers….

We are very fortunate and grateful to the financial support we’ve been receiving over the last two months.  We were somehow confident by before the month of May ended we would get 40 supporters.  Wish was fulfilled and surprisingly the other day not only was the number of supporters was 40, but also the number of shares was at 400 and now the raised amount is $4,445.  I’m not into numerology, but when I saw the report, I was quite intrigued.

We’re still counting on the support of Emahoy’s fans to make this documentary film a reality!!!

Where we stand…

It has been an exciting experience since we began our fundraising campaign to make this documentary film a reality.  Exactly two months into the campaign, we have been blessed to have 38 individuals who helped us raise $4,225 and 391 shares.  These are family and genrous friends, most of whom got to know about our project through Facebook.

Thank you again for all the support and encouraging remarks.  We couldn’t have come this far without your support!!!  Please continue to spread the word to make an impactful fundraiser!!!

Sincerely,

The team.

What the Reviews Say About Emahoy

Emahoy Tsegue Maryam Guebrou’s legacy in promoting piano music within our scociety is truly a treasure to be honored and acknowledged.  Little was known about this Nun-Music composer until the release of her Ethiopiques 21 CD.  She has fans across the globe and below are just a taste of raving remarks by various media outlet.

My favorite quote is:

“Here is a woman who invented her own musical language in order to feel closer to her God. The recordings that are collected in this record are blessed with a spiritual richness I’ve rarely encountered elsewhere in music. It possesses undiluted soul in its truest, rarest sense.”

Here’s what the Guardian has to say about Emahoy:

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/aug/18/ethiopian-nun-music-holy-enrapture

The Magnet Magazine says, ” Guèbrou’s humble, soulful, thoughtful solo compositions suggest she was raised on a diet of Satie, Debussy and Chopin—and indeed, as a child, she studied violin in Switzerland—but they’re also steeped in the gorgeous and melancholy scales or kiñits that make Ethiopian music so distinctive and alluring. The result is music that seems to come from an alternate-universe version of 19th-century Paris. ”
