Ayalew Mesfin is among the legends of a 1970s Ethiopian funk era whose music was forced underground by his country’s government. Now, over 40 years later, his triumphant return gives us a chance to discover a rare & beautiful moment in music history.
Thanks to all who came out for our first Brooklyn performance!
Special thanks to Marc Smith, Josh Couvares, and Adam Howard for having me in this ensemble. This band has been a pleasure to play with thus far, and I’m looking forward to many more great performances together. And damn, we sound good! 😉
Marc Smith is an expert songwriter and sound engineer. His originals are all sonically complex and emotionally poetic. Marc’s music draws from reality, and is a beautifully emotional expression. Don’t miss this chance to see it performed by his masterfully selected, extremely talented band. 😁
