Q&A will be talking today with one of Eritrea’s long-time friend: Mr. Fulvio Grimaldi, an independent journalist from Italy. He has known Eritrea over four decades ago; when the Eritrean voice was being denied of an audience, he talked about the Eritrean struggle for independence in the western media through documentaries he made, photo exhibitions he arranged and columns he wrote in newspapers and magazines.
He was here in Eritrea in the past weeks working on a new documentary regarding the Eritrean post-independence journey of development and resilience.

For the edition of the Tour of Eritrea, Q & A has been traveling around the country alongside the riders, organizers and commissionaires. The Tour of Eritrea 2016 finished on Saturday 23rd after five consecutive stages extending throughout the major cities and towns of Eritrea.

Nobody detests another Prince Charming and Cinderella Story; not even Q&A! … Another story with a fairy’s intervention, another enchanted carriage with white gallant cavalry in a pixie land and sparkles of magic everywhere! Lately, there is this song that has been trending widely amongst the Eritrean young audience nationwide and overseas, it is about a peasant girl whom has captured the heart of an aristocrat’s son (Wedi-Mislene). Traditional, modern and techno sounds all mixed together for the song that, I am sure, is on ‘repeat 1’ on playlist of many! Born in 1990, we give you today, a rocking singer- vocalist Semhar Yowhanes.
