  1. I love this series. I would like to see more of the long form videos. It
    does not have to be heavily edited. This makes it more of a raw documentary
    format. I think that is great. I find myself wanting more of the story and
    to know more about the people. Good start with the people portion in this
    video. Also More Beats! I want more beats featured that are made. Let me
    see the results please!

  2. Meet Gelila: An Ethiopian beat maker with great talent and even greater
    dreams, like bringing awareness to health issues in Addis Ababa.

  3. As if Ethiopia is short native musicians who could the job ….. why is
    full of Americans …. sad …. but some one is making money of out this.

  4. The kids are being offered a chance to do something different and they are
    enjoying it…they are happy to be a part of this experiment…Fissh Girmay
    if negativity is all you can contribute, the least you can do is be fluent
    in the language….till then try to use positive words to express your
    thoughts…I personally think it’s a great opportunity for girls like
    Gelila and for us to learn about our people back home…Good job keep it up

  5. Ethiopian Beat Maker (Part 1/2)

    Gelila’s dream is to became a beat maker. For two weeks, she trained in a
    Beat Making Lab after school to learn the techniques of hip hop and
    electronic music production with Professor Pierce Freelon and producer
    Apple Juice Kid – working on beats to bring awareness to health issues in
    Addis Ababa.

  6. the way that they use beatmaking/sampling to help people is an idea that Mr
    Green did first… these people do not deserve credit
