Afro Habesha Band is a 10 piece ensemble performing Ethiopian traditional and contemporary music and dance. It is soulful, vibrant, visually and aurally beautiful. Vocalist Seble Girma fronts a combination of some of Melbourne’s finest instrumentalists, including the cream of Ethiopian-Australian artists, combining traditional instruments, horn section and a modern rhythm section that ‘rocks’ giving voice to rhythmically infectious grooves unique to Ethiopian music and culture. Extraordinary! Seble’s amazing dance moves and immaculately melodic vocal style were widely applauded in her days with the Ethiopian Circus in which she performed alongside saxophonist Abiy Sahle. Abiy continues to double on the kirar (traditional Ethiopian harp) in the current line-up. They are joined by Australia’s leading contemporary Ethiopian instrumentalist, Daniel Atlaw, Sri Lanka born djembe guru Ray Pereira and a host of other top local artists who have committed seriously to the not insubstantial task of mastering complex Ethiopian rhythms, melodies and song structures. The band is accompanied by energetic and colourful dancers whose costume changes reflect the rich diversity of Ethiopian traditional culture.
