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.
