Hailu Mergia Tour Dates
The keyboard and accordion maestro Hailu Mergia is arguably the greatest of Brian Shimkovitz's A&R discoveries out of Africa. He started out playing keys for iconic Ethiopian group Walias Band, whose 1977 recording 'Muziqawi Silt' is a defining piece of the country's musical history, before going on to work with legendary Ethio jazz vibraphonist Mulatu Astatke. Mergia himself is a purveyor of Ethiopian pop for want of a better description, his virtuosity at the accordion a sight to behold. Hailu Mergia tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Mar 2017.
