About this Event

Anbessa Orchestra

Anbessa Orchestra is a 7 piece band based in Brooklyn NY that draws it's inspiration from the diverse musical culture of Ethiopia, combining these unique sounds with the more western sounds of Funk, Jazz, R&B and Rock. The band has been a prominent figure on the NY scene and has played alongside legendary Ethiopian keyboardist/composer Hailu Mergia. The band has also been featured on the "Beyond Addis Vol.2" compilation featuring new music inspired by Ethiopia.

"No one does Ethio-Jazz quite like Anbessa Orchestra " -Popmatters.com

“Best debut of 2015? There’s nothing that’s come out so far this year that can touch this.” –NY Music Daily

“Well-crafted originals. We hope to hear more of their big, vibrant sound in the future” – Afropop Worldwide

“Anbessa Orchestra tears through hits from Ethiopian music’s lateSixties/early-Seventies golden age. The seven-piece outfit deploys rolling grooves and funky horns with remarkably faithful originals” –Village Voice

Strawberry Cheesesteak
