Description

The Emerge Festival is produced by Multicultural Arts Victoria NHATTY MAN With a mesmerizing stage performance and a huge smile that’s always intact, Nhatty lacks anything but energy. As an upcoming talent, he managed to crack into the Ethiopian music industry working with an infamous band called “Express” which he later left to join another band called “Sweet”. Known far and wide by his fans as Nhatty Man, he became a household name after his first single “Amrogne” hit the Ethiopian market. In the early stage of his music career, Nhatty started doing featuring works with Netsanet Melesse’s “fertuna” and Dawit Frew’s “Ethiopia” while later working with other renowned Ethiopian artists such as Henok Abebe for “Cheferaw dera”, the KORA award winning Tsedeniya Gebremarkos’ “Yeker Beyalehu”, Jossy’s upbeat track “zigi zaga” and many more. Nhatty’s life has gone in a million ways he never anticipated. After dropping out from a civil engineering school in his second year in college, he started a new journey as a disc jockey (DJ), a thought that has never dared to cross his mind. But it wasn’t long before Nhatty wanted more in on the fun and excitement of the new life that was unfolding before him. After making an appearance in a couple of featuring works, he officially made his debut album “Man” on February16, 2011. “Out with the old and in with the new” was Nhatty’s Moto at the time as he quickly learned his ways in the Ethiopian music industry and never looked back. “Man”, Nhatty’s first album dropped in the market on February16, 2011 was widely acclaimed by his fans. The album which contains 14 tracks including his smash singles “Amerogne” and “Addis ken” has different types of genres like R&B, Reggae, rock and local rhythms. The album incorporates collaborations with some Ethiopian singers like Hade Haile and Betty. Through his music, Nhatty wishes to change the bad image and stereotype that the world has towards his country, Ethiopia. https://www.facebook.com/realNhattyman THE LALIBELAS The Lalibelas, Melbourne’s newest Ethio-Jazz collaboration was founded in early 2014, by Ethiopian Bassist Yoseph H Bekele.

The Lalibelas extend the boundaries of this genre,combining bass driven melodies, over-riding harmonica and saxophone solos, together with guitar, drums and keys. The Lalibelas paint musical landscapes of emotional intensity whilst providing the audience with a solid listening and dancing experience. Melbourne audiences have responded with acknowledgement to the versatility of Bekele’s original compositions and the band’s performance.
