Abate Berihun and the Addis Ken project
Addis Ken – አዲስ ቀን (“New Day” in Amharic) – is the name of a unique musical project from vocalist and sax player Abate Berihun and pianist Roy Mor, two international artists active in Israel and abroad.
A prolific saxophonist, composer and vocalist, Berihun is one of Israel’s most prominent Ethiopian musicians, who has toured with musical giants such as Mulatu Astatke and Mahmoud Ahmed, and is the founder and leader of influential afro-jazz and ethnic
ensembles “Tezeta”, “Ras Dashen” and “Kuluma”.
Addis Ken is all about soulful groove, spiritual search and heartfelt blues. Together with pianist Roy Mor, bass player David Michaeli, and drummer Amir Bar Akiva, Berihun brings to the stage original music that fuses Jewish-Ethiopian soul music and prayers passed through the generations with ageless spiritual and mysterious texts. The result is a thrilling encounter between ancient Ethiopian traditions and the legacy of a modern jazz ensemble, steeped in musical adventurousness, deep groove, and the spirit of the blues.The Addis Ken Project has performed internationally in clubs and festivals in Denmark, Panama and Canada, as well as at the Red Sea Jazz Festival in Eilat and at the international Jerusalem Jazz Festival, and received rave reviews in the media. In 2020, they won the Israeli Ministry of Culture’s highest artistic grant. In August 2021 the group has finished recording a new album in Nilento Studio, Sweden.
