“Black Love” is the Bonita Applebum-smooth latest from Ethiopian-American wordsmith Gabriel Teodros. When we last heard from the respected Seattleite, he was spitting otherwordly concoctions in the form of Ethio-diasporic collective CopperWire. His latest marks a return to Pacific Northwest soul, this time teaming up with Montreal’s Ethiopian-Canadian songstress/MC Sarah MK in a testament to beauty. New Zealand’s SoulChef translates the pair’s heart heavy pride into rainy night meditation. The first in a series of singles leading up to Teodros’ upcoming solo record Children Of The Dragon, “Black Love” appears on SoulChef’s recent serving of Food For Thought. Listen and download the ode to East African romance below.
