Genre: Afro funk

Fiercely and with a swing, that is how AddisAbabaBand play afrobeat. Imagine the band as a cosmic vessel, fueled by afro, funk, jazz, avant-garde, hard hitting beats and collective improvisation. In the front, you’ll find a close-knit horn section, backed by a super swinging constellation of bass, guitar and keys on a foundation of enthralling beats.

Since forming the band has played an abundance of live shows – both at Danish venues, festivals and even abroad. One of the memorable highlights of these energetic performances is Roskilde Festival in 2018 where a sea of people filled the horizon. 

The band write and arrange the music together. And this is one the key reasons AddisAbabaBand is such an amazing live band, because the collected creative input of none less than 11 musicians create an irresistible vitality on stage. With musical improvisation as a driving force, the band create a virtual room in which everyone is able to dance freely away together.
