Saxophonist, vocalist and composer Abate Berihun is one of Israel’s most prominent Ethiopian musicians, known for his collaborations with artists such as Ariel Zilber, Ehud Banai, Yossi Fine, Kutiman, Anat Fort, Omri Mor, Shay Zelman and many others. Joined in his latest project by pianist Roy Mor, bassist David Michaeli and drummer Nitzan Birnbaum, he presents original compositions, Ethiopian-Jewish soul music and songs inspired by Jewish prayers.
