Hailu Mergia is an Ethiopian musician who has 6 decades of music making behind him. Starting out in Addis Ababa in the ‘60s, and into the ‘70s with Walias Band, he eventually moved to the US, where a musically fallow period was filled as a taxi driver. His 2018 album Lala Belu saw him reach new audiences, bringing the sound of Ethiopia to the West. Now he returns with Yene Mircha. He uses a whole host of Ethiopian musicians from his past and present, and at 74 shows no sign of his creativity waning.
