This playlist represents the music that drove me to play Ethiopian and Afro-centric music. Starting with the first tune I ever heard from Ethiopia, Muluqen Mellese’s “Tenesh Kelbe Lay” (which roughly means ‘get off of my heart’), this music hasn’t left my heart since. It has become a driving force in my music and life, and I strive to explore it and study it as much as I can and hope to touch the listeners in a very primal, heartfelt manner. - Nadav Paled, Anbessa Orchestra.
Anbessa Orchestra is an Israeli septet based out of Brooklyn, out now with their second studio album, ‘Negestat.’
