Girma Bèyènè & Akalé Wubé

Girma Bèyènè is a true legend when it comes to Ethiopian music. After moving to the United States and taking a 25-year hiatus from making music, Bèyènè jubilantly accepted the invitation from the Parisian band Akalé Wubé to return to the spotlight and perform once more. Together the artists transform ’70s Ethiopian soul and groove music into a retro-futuristic soundtrack which makes you dance from head to toe. Their collaboration aroused many strong emotions amongst fans of Ethiopian music. Bèyènè is now ready for an epic homecoming in Washington, DC, a city that has adopted a huge Ethiopian community, with a show consisting of the best tracks from his legendary career, accompanied by Akalé Wubé, the band that helped him rediscover his sound.
