Hailu Mergia rose to prominence in Ethiopia in the 1970s, leading the Walias band in their exploration of hard funk, traditional music and jazz in Ethiopia’s capital.
Mergia has played numberless sold-out clubs shows and appeared at prominent festivals, with revitalised interest in Mergia’s laid-back Ethio grooves culminating after he released his comeback album Lala Belu early in 2018.
