Ethiopia. Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region. Omo Valley. Hayzo Village. High altitude: 2800 meters. Dorze tribe. The Dorze are a small ethnic group inhabiting the Gamo Gofa Zone who speak the Dorze language, an Omotic tongue. The Dorze are predominantly agriculturalists living in permanent villages. Well known cotton weavers, the Dorze tribe were once warriors. Marc Vella is a french musician and a nomadic pianist. Over the last 25 years he has travelled with his Grand Piano in around forty countries to celebrate humanity. Thanks to the variacordes which he has devised, his piano music is unique. Creator of “La Caravane amoureuse” (The Caravan of Love) he takes people with him to say “I love you” to others and “lovingly conquered” their hearts and souls. The Dorze numbered 40'000 reside in villages near the cities of Chencha and Arba Minch. Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region (often abbreviated as SNNPR) is one of the nine ethnic divisions of Ethiopia. 5.11.15 © 2015 Didier Ruef
