Hailu Mergia Hailu Mergia


The Hærverk programme during Oslo World has a strong finale: The legendary Hailu Mergia will play here during the last night of the festival. The ethiopian keyboard player and accordionist started playing in Addis Ababa in the sixties, and made his mark on the golden age of ethio jazz and dance bands in the seventies with Walias Band, the house orchestra at Addis Hilton, and many other collaborations. In the eighties, he recorded the dreamlike cult solo album Hailu Mergia & His Classical Instrument on accordion, drum machines, different synths and keyboards. After a couple of decades in the shadows, his career has taken a sharm turn for the better in later years. Partly, this is due to a string of successful reissues, but first and foremost, he has recorded some fabulous new solo music. The trio album Lala Belu from 2018 and Yena Mircha from last year with a larger band both show his distinct style blossom in different new surroundings.
