Feedel Band

Like the work of rural craftsmen, The feedel Band's music is hewn from the rough, then honed and smoothed and polished until it glistens.  The result is a wonderful sound that retains the essential freedom and spirit of Ethio-jazz but whose every note and phrase is purposefully, perfectly and lovingly laid down.

Feedel is a Washington DC based jazz jump band and performs as an Ethiopian-centric unit. Feedel applies Ethiopian pentatonic melodies to jazz and mixes those melodies into a simmering stew of musical genre, textures and feeling. The Feedel sound can be best described as an East African jazz meets 1960’s rhythm and blues with a little bit of funk and a whole lotta 6/8 drum beat or scales that together packs a musical wallop. The band has devoted its 20-year creative career into ever-evolving and an ever-inspiring multi-dimensional art form. The essence or roots of Ethiopian-jazz gathers inspiration from the Golden Age of Ethiopian popular music in the late 1960s and 70s.

The band is comprised of:

  • Araya Woldemichael( Keys)
  • Alemseged Kebede (Bass)
  • Moges Habte (Sax)
  • Ben Hall (Trombone)
  • Kenneth Joseph (Drums)

Over its two-decade lifetime Feedel has similarly supported Ethiopian artists as diverse as Tilahun Gessesse (The King of Ethiopian pop music), Mahmoud Ahmad and Aster Aweke.
