Ego Lemos is a remarkable man, with a remarkable voice in more ways than one. Regarded as a significant East Timorese community member, Ego has lived through three tumultuous periods of his nation’s history. He has interpreted and modernised some of the most beautiful and heart-wrenching traditional melodies from his country’s history, and produced a wealth of original songs in the nation’s lingua-franca, Tetum. His music has aleady been exposed to many in Australia via his numerous shows with Gurrumul. This is his debut album.
