New York (Tadias) – Wow, what an event! On Wednesday evening, August 20, Damrosch’s Park was packed with Ethiopiques enthusiasts and curious New Yorkers who were treated to an astonishing concert of fusion rock, jazz and Ethiopian music. The historic event at the Lincoln Center’s out of doors concert, one of the longest-running free summer festivals in the U.S, featured Mahmoud Ahmed and Alemayehu Eshete accompanied by the Either Orchestra, and the legendary saxophonist Getatchew Mekurya in collaboration with Dutch band the Ex. The trio performed for the first time at Damrosch’s Park.

    It was one of those moments in time that we will cherish for the coming years. We will never forget the silence when Getachew was blowing Tizeta. It looked as though everyone stopped breathing for a moment. Music at its best!

    It was worth every minute of our seven hours drive just to watch the concert and the dynamics of NY.
