The Return of Ayalew Mesfin, The 70’s Ethiopian Funk God!
February 13th, 2018 Vinyl Me, Please., Now Again Records and ArtDontSleep present: The Return of Ayalew Mesfin w/ Debo Band
With opening performances by: Wondem and Ethio Cali
From the album Hasabe (My Worries), a Now-Again x Vinyl Me, Please release, coming January 23. Ayalew Mesfin is among the legends of a 1970s Ethiopian funk era whose music was forced underground by his country’s government. Now, over 40 years later, his triumphant return gives us a chance to discover a rare & beautiful moment in music history.
We’ve been working really hard on this and we are excited to be presenting it to you. If you purchase entry into one of the events, you will be granted entry into both events. This is a very special one time happening and only going down in Los Angeles!
