Gabriel Teodros ft. Sarah MK 'Black Love'

Ethiopian-American Seattle MC Gabriel Teodros "Black Love" with Sarah MK is now available on New Zealand producer SoulChef's 'Food For Thought.'


"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.
