Hailed by the Sydney Morning Herald as “Groundbreaking roots musician” and “Sublime ***** ” by the Montreal Metro, it is his new EP, Woven, that has finally pulled back the veil on the story of this internationally celebrated musician. Yeshe has emerged as the exciting new voice of Roots Music.

Yeshe’s story is one of a global search for identity, fuelled by a deep connection to music. He left home at 16 and for the next ten years came of age and survived by busking on the hard streets of Europe’s capitals, an experience that shaped his world view.

During this time, Yeshe had a chance encounter with Mustapha Tettey Addy – a world renowned Ghanaian master drummer and ethnomusicologist – which sparked Yeshe’s musical journey of many years, living and studying Mbira, Kamele Ngoni and percussion in the villages and ghettos of West and Southern Africa.

Leaving Africa to return to Europe, Yeshe had a chance meeting en-route with Canada’s Harry Manx. Since that time they have collaborated and toured together globally. Yeshe’s second album, "Roots & Wings”, won a Billboard World Song Contest. More recently, Yeshe recorded and toured globally with one of Australia’s leading Roots artists, Xavier Rudd.
