Gili Yalo

From his base in Tel aviv, Gili Yalo is launching a solo career in a new project that combines Ethiopian roots with soul, funk, psychedelic and jazz music. He incorporates sounds from traditional Ethiopian music into into contemporary music production. The result is an exceptional, rich, vivid melody accompanied by Gili’s unique voice with lyrics in both English and Amharic.

Yalo's music embodies his own personal story, which inspired the rhythm and flow of the whole project. And what a story he has to tell: Operation Moses was the covert evacuation of Ethiopian Jews from Sudan during a famine in 1984. These Ethiopian Jews, including Yalo and his family, fled from their native land on foot to refugee camps in Sudan, towards the "Promised Land."

Gili Yalo’s band is made up of five musicians, including guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, and trumpet.
