Tezeta Band is the sound of nostalgia and sweaty soulful dance music. It is part jazz, motown and ancient Ethiopian melodies blended with the R & B music of the 1960’s and 1970’s. Imagine if the sounds of James Brown, Jackie Mittoo and John Coltrane melted together in the hot clubs and lounges of Addis Ababa.

The inspiration for the Tezeta Band is the Golden Age of Ethiopian Dance Music that produced legendary Ethiopian musicians such as Tilahoun Gessesse, Mahmoud Ahmed, Seyoum Gebreyes, Aleymeyehu Eshete, and Mulatu Astatke. These artists blended revolutionary sounds and ideas into a powerful Ethiopian soul sound.
