Samuel Yirga & Band feat. Special pop-up guests (Eth/UK/Uganda)
 · Hosted by Alliance éthio-française d'Addis-Abeba
Ethiopian prodigy pianist Samuel Yirga and his band return to the stage making for a journey to the essence of Ethio-jazz!
Featuring mostly Ethiopian infused music with a jazz-funk-soul-twist, Sammy's music contains an array of traditional instruments punctuated with brass and full of deep virtuosic piano solos. 

Besides being a unique opportunity to see Samuel Yirga shine, the evening will also include a pop-up dance performance from special guests coming from Uganda and the UK. 

In a nutshell, the show promises an intoxicating artistic collage that is both bold and sensitive, often improvised and always impassioned...
