Feedel Band – Ethiopian Funk, Soul, + Jazz

Date:

Location:Downstairs

Venue:Feedel Band - Ethiopian Funk, Soul, + Jazz

 

EthioJazz all-stars Feedel Band bring their funky mix of genres to Bossa every first Thursday of the month!

With the largest Ethiopian community outside of Ethiopia itself, it’s no wonder DC birthed Feedel Band, a group with ties to the homeland but reverence for imported rhythms and global tones. “Feedel” means “letter” or “alphabet” in Amharic – a fitting name as the band is developing a musical language all its own, paying its dues to trad EthioJazz but also rewriting the book on the genre.

The members of Feedel Band boast bang-up résumés, having performed with many illustrious musicians, both individually and as a group.  They take their cues from Ethiopian legends such as Walias, Ibex, and Roha Band, but their style of Ethiopian funk, soul, and jazz is straight original.
