Eritrean singer:

Born in Bulgaria in 1986 form Eritrean parents, he moved to U.S. with his parents from Sudan at the age of 7.

However,Sador has not forgotten his Eritrean heritage. In some of his songs he mixes Tigrigna music with English rap lyrics. 

Using the stage name Sandman, Sador started singing rap music at the age of 12. By age of 15 he started recording.

Sandman`s songs are about his childhood period of war and life in California.

Learn Tigrinya, Before Snapping at Relatives’

ariamalula:

As with photographing inhabitants anywhere in the world, it is essential to be able to communicate with them in their language. I set out this task with slight challenges and used my mother – a fluent Tigrinya speaker – as a crutch. After eating the spongy, lightly-flaked trademark cakes of Sweet Asmara Cafe and three servings of boon– prepared at traditional coffee ceremony held in Eritrean…

I often get asked about records of Eritrea that pre date the-30-year-armed-struggle-for-independence. Makes sense. People wanna know about a past Eritrean civilian life. Here’s what I’ve discovered through the Library of Congress. Good luck.

#Eritrea has recognized the number of its children diagnosed with Autism. (And that number, whether or not accounted for grows.) 23 families in #Asmara have registered their family member on the spectrum, but one board member strongly believes the number is higher. “It has [to] be more,” he said. One way NADSAE is breaking those barriers is through assembling a parent’s manual in collabo with its parent ministries (Health, Education and Social/Human Welfare) targeting parents who a) need to understand the disorder and b) work with their children to help them develop their skills. The manual’s tentative deadline is early 2015. #autismawareness #mentalhealth #eritrea2014
