  • Excerpt from #Abel Tesfaye's interview with Billboard

    Billboard: You’re representing for different ­places — Toronto, #Ethiopia. How do you approach that?

    Abel Tesfaye (The Weeknd): I made it known that I’m Ethiopian. I put it in my music, and my style of singing is very Ethiopian-inspired. I’ve never even been there. I’d love to go home and see my roots.

    Billboard: Where would you direct a Weeknd fan in terms of Ethiopian music?

    Abel Tesfaye (The Weeknd): Aster Aweke, for sure. You can hear her voice at the end of “False Alarm” on the new album. Her voice is the greatest thing you’ll ever hear. There’s a great composer named Mulatu Astatke, he’s probably the most famous Ethiopian musician right now. Jim Jarmusch used his music. I’d love to meet him and work with him somehow. Mahmoud Ahmed is a great singer, and so is Tilahun Gessesse. Teddy Afro is more of a pop singer, great voice. This is what I grew up on. I’d wake up in the morning, and my mom would be listening to all this stuff while she was making coffee. I’m working on University of Toronto getting its own class [on Ethiopian language studies].
