Program notes

At Moods in Zurich in 2019, the Ethiopian multi instrumentalist Hailu Mercia performed his most well-known works with his trio, formed of Eliot Seppa on the double bass and Ken Joseph on drums. Mercia is known for his role in establishing the 70’s group, Walias Band, considered today as the biggest group from the golden age of Ethiopian music. Here, with his accordion, melodica, and his keyboard, he blends in perfectly to accompany his fellow trio members.
