It’s rare when music can be described as distilled feeling, but here we are with HAN by Berhana. Our host, Ken Grand-Pierre, describes the album as the feeling you get when ascending into the sky on a plane. Your brain feels weightless and transient at the same time. We explore this feeling and more on this episode with Amaine Berhane (aka Berhana) - the R&B songsmith who’s crafted HAN.

Before diving into music, Berhana was a film student who was deeply passionate about film. That passion has greatly informed the textures of HAN, which feels much more like a soundtrack experience than a traditional album. KKen Grand-Pierre met with Berhana to discuss his love of films, the work that went into HAN, touring Asia and much more.
