Description


When you listen to the debut album from R&B pop chameleon Berhana, it'll come as no surprise that he's a film buff. The 27-year-old studied film in New York City, and his vision is cinematic. He sees music primarily in its capacity for storytelling, for escapism. That's why HAN, the LP, has a narrator woven between tracks, guiding the listener on a journey through psychedelic soul and minimal electronica all led by Berhana's honeyed vocals.

 

When asked if the LP's title was a play on the character HAL from '2001: A Space Odyssey', Berhana laughs. The word is not an acronym, nor has it any specific meaning, but Berhana will concede that 'han' are three letters in the middle of his own name. The concept for the narrator actually came from somewhere else entirely. One of Berhana's favorite records from his childhood was Midnight Marauders by A Tribe Called Quest. He remembers the songs' epicness, but more than that, he recalls how they were tied together by this narrative that really took you out of yourself to another planet.
