"If you don't know where you came from, you will never know where you are going."

This collaboration is in tribute to the father of Eritrean music, Jigna Ato Atewberhan Seghid. He is the father of Eritrean music because he promoted unity amongst Eritreans with his famous song "Aslamay K'stanay", patriotism amongst all Eritreans with his song, "Adeye Adi Jeganu", and the preserving of our culture through this song we are collaborating on, "Bekuta Welel Beli".

Ato Atewbrhan Seghid has a big impact on us new generation artists, reminding us to return back to our roots to understand where our path should be going musically. We want to thank Ato Seghid and all Eritrean legendary artists for paving the road for us new young Eritrean artists.

On kirar, wata, and lead vocals is Shewit from Vancouver, Canada.
On flute/shambiqo is Desbele from Tel Aviv, Israel (Meley Band).
On keyboard and backing vocals is Luwam from Toronto, Canada.
