The world has yet to discover the musical treasures of Ethiopia. We want to place Ethiopia on the global music map and give rightful credit to all Ethiopian creatives. Muzikawi wants to do things right and fair for ALL creatives of Ethiopia. We infuse international music industry standards to our business practices in order to protect the rights that many musicians, song writers, composers and artists may not even know they have.
