Location:  Fine Arts Garden

About The Event

Part of City Stages 2018

Combining Ethiopian roots music with a modern touch of jazz and soul, Tel Aviv-based Gili Yalo incorporates traditional sound into the music of right now. Yalo’s family was part of the migration to Israel of Ethiopian Jews fleeing famine in Sudan; the music encouraged Gili and his family to keep moving forward in this exhausting, emotional journey.
