Event Description

Born in Addis Ababa, Girma Bèyènè is a composer, arranger, performer, bandleader, and a true legend of Ethiopian music. A contemporary of fellow musicians Mulatu Astatke, Mahmoud Ahmed, and Hailu Mergia, Girma is credited for arranging over 60 tracks in the 1960s and 70s in “Swinging Addis” during the Golden Era of Ethiopian music. After a long hiatus from music he was drawn back to performing by his musical disciples, the France-based band Akalé Wubé, leading ambassadors of Ethiopian groove.
