    LA debut! Singing in both English and Amharic, Ethiopia’s official language, Gili Yalo creates a rich patchwork of contemporary soul, funk, psychedelic rock, and traditional Ethiopian music for the closing concert of this year’s Sunset Concerts. Drawing inspiration from his experience as an Ethiopian Jew who fled war and famine in Sudan in 1984 to eventually re-settle in Israel, Yalo’s work represents his own personal triumph while giving a new meaning to traditional Ethiopian music.
