As we mentioned earlier this week, this past weekend was the 40th Anniversary of the Eritrea’s historic and iconic Bologna festival!
Artists from past and present came out this weekend to celebrate the accomplishments and the history of Eritrea along with the memories passed in the last 40 years of Bologna! People from all over the world came out for this historic event. Apparently there was an estimated 16,000 Eritreans there for the historic event!
For the opening ceremony, Fihira starts of singing and artists from past like Elsa Kidane, Mohammad Osman, Wedi Sheik, Wedi Tikul, Wedi Shawl, and more sang their historic Bologna hits and some new ones as well!
