Addis Ababa To Melbourne: The Black Jesus Experience, Papa Chango and DJ Systa BB

Loading Events

For one special evening two of Australia’s most exciting Ethiopian jazz ensembles transport you on an international jazz journey. Dance all night to hypnotic African-influenced grooves.

The Black Jesus Experience performs an irresistibly danceable blend of traditional Ethiopian song with 21st century groove, hip-hop and funk. The eight-piece ensemble have toured internationally including appearances at Glastonbury Festival and collaborated with the father of Ethio-Jazz Mulatu Astatke for their recent album Cradle of Humanity.

Papa Chango deliver subterranean trance-like movements of afro-funk mashed-up with psychedelic guitar lines and scatterings of broken brass. Featuring their newest member Nat Grant on vibraphone and percussion, the band let their Ethio-Jazz influences take hold on their new album Lost Moon of Bellaris that explores the darkness of space and the lightness of life.
