Tezeta Band

Ethiopian Dance Music

Who is Tezeta Band?

Who we are and what we're about

Tezeta Band is the sound of nostalgia and soulful dance music. It is part jazz, part soul and part ancient Ethiopian melodies blended with the R & B music of the 1960’s and 1970’s. It comes from a period when the influential sounds of James Brown, Jackie Mittoo and John Coltrane melted together with Ethiopian tradition in the hot clubs and lounges of Addis Ababa. Tezeta Band’s inspiration is the Golden Age of Ethiopian Dance Music that produced legendary Ethiopian musicians such as Tilahoun Gessesse, Mahmoud Ahmed, Seyoum Gebreyes, Alemayehu Eshete, and Mulatu Astatke. These artists combined revolutionary sounds and ideas into a powerful Ethiopian soul sound.
