Samuel Yirga

Young Ethiopian pianist and composer Samuel Yirga comes to take Brighton by storm with his thought-provoking exploration of Ethiopian music fused with forward-thinking jazz and soul. Expect a celebration of contemporary and classical jazz, songs influenced by the golden era of Ethiopian music, traditional African rhythms and deeply felt classical piano undertones.

Signed with Peter Gabriel’s renowned label Real World Records, his album Guzo involved collaborations with more than 40 international musicians and was a huge success. Samuel also plays with the Addis funk band Nubian Arc and is a member of the UK/Ethiopian collective Dub Colossus.
