Duality is the balancing of two separate selves through a singular life. When met with acceptance, living a dualistic lifestyle can often result in the creation of new and revolutionary ideas. One individual in particular, a person who hold a dear spot in the hearts of the Origin Founders.
As children in East Africa, we didn't acknowledge our blending of cultures as something unique, something to be recognized. We simply.. were. We existed, balancing cultural practices, creating bonds built off the traditions of 2, 3, 4, or more cultures.
No, it wasn't until we left our safe zone of cultural acceptance, and broke off into distant places, that we began to realize the significance of our duality.
Childhood friend, Ghedion Behonegne a.k.a ARMAGHEDION is an Ethiopian DJ that represents the balance between the Modern progression and ancient heritage.
His sound is unique, and indicative of the life we third cultured kids share. He blends techno and various cultural African beats to channel the story we all share, through music. Like the duality that is his existence; many cultures, one song.
ARMAGHEDION inspires the acceptance of cultural diversity with each beat he throws down.
