Ethiopian Jazz and Funk with Feedel Band at Bossa Bistro
October 4, 2018 @ 9:30 pm - 11:30 pm$10.00
Feedel Band take Ethiopian music and jazz and blending it into a simmering stew of musical genres, textures and feeling. They are creating, and in some cases re-creating, the musical language of what has been called ‘Ethio-Jazz’ and they are considered a DC treasure. Saxophonist, composer, and arranger Moges Habte was at ground zero during the Golden Age of Ethiopian Music in the Swingin’ Addis days in Ethiopia and played and recorded with creme de la creme of legendary Ethiopian bands and musicians. He can be heard on the quintessential recording of ‘Musicawe Silt’ by Walias Band – the most covered Ethiopian song of all time. They play first Thursday of every month at Bossa Bistro.
The October 4 date is presented by Multiflora Productions‘ annual month-long DIY global music festival “Flash of the Spirit” that happens across multiple venues in Washington DC during the month of October. Its mission is to present emerging and remarkable international musicians from abroad as well as local musicians from our diverse immigrant communities to celebrate their stories, heritage, and cultures through their music.
