Festival Description

Alliance Ethio-Frenchwoman of Addis-Abeba (Ethiopia) presents the “Ethiopian Music Festival”, which that is an annual festival that is held in Addis Ababa. The program celebrates Ethiopian Music with concert performances that are open to the public free of charge. The artistic directors, Heruy Arefeaine and Francis Falceto are part of a team that launched the festival in 2001.

The organizers hope to see the festival grow and further assist Ethopian artists as a venue to gather and perform year-round and to enlarge the overall size of the festival. Young people are encouraged to get involved.
