Tadias Addis - The famous artist is going give a melody and poetry to the EBS journalist and vocalist. Samuel’s journey started at an entrance exam for Yared Music School of Addis Ababa University where many experienced musicians come together and take the same exams. But Samuel’s natural talent for musical sensibilities and confidence mean he was not only able to enter the compound but carry his studies through to become the “most unforgettable students”, according a piano instructor at the school. “My time at Yared Music School was so great as well as tight. I didn’t think I could play by starting from scratch, but I enjoyed it so much and tried my best by staying committed”, Samuel told this magazine. But he also admitted that his experimenting at the School was “difficult to be accepted,” perhaps contributing to his relatively unknown fame at home. Samuel doesn’t “believe in luck” and doesn’t think he is “lucky but a dreamer and a hard-worker with a positive mind” and he loves “experimenting” on his piano, which means his stay at the Yared Music School represented lots of ups and downs. But he soon became Jazz night sensation in Addis Ababa where he played in many places with different bands, notably with Nubian Arc, stretching the limits of his ‘experiment in fusing Ethiopian jazz with funk, Latin and even pop music.
