Tezeta Band
Tezeta Band
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.

Ethiopian Music and its hypnotically funky rhythms and exotic tonality is the foundation for Portland’s Tezeta Band, an eight piece ensemble that plays nostalgic Ethiopian soul music. While rooting their sound in Ethio-Soul Jazz, Tezeta Band has been playing old-school African inspired jams across clubs and festivals to popular acclaim since 2008. The band has released one full-length album entitled "The Origin of Night Life" and consists of members of Five Fingers of Funk and Ural Thomas & the Pain."
