Anbessa Orchestra (formerly Lions) is a seven-piece group of Israeli and American musicians based in New York that draws its inspiration from classic Ethiopian music anthologized on the cult Ethiopiques series. Anbessa’s approach to the music is personal, but never strays far from the '60s and '70s sound of the original. It plays better and lesser known tunes from some of the Ethiopian masters as well as its own compositions. The result is an original sound that would have fit nicely on the Ethio-funk scene of 1970’s Addis Ababa.
Featuring Wayne Tucker on trumpet; Eyal Vilner on alto saxophone; Eden Bareket baritone saxophone; Nadav Peled on guitar, compositions, arrangements; Dor Heled on Keyboards; Tamir Shmerling on bass and Erán Fink on drums.
