Chachi is back
I was privileged to be at Chachi Tadesse’s “I am an African” concert two years ago. My memories of the concert are atmospheric rather than vividly detailed but she performed in groups and solo, holding the entire audience spellbound by her musical efforts. An energetic bundle of vigor and with infectious charisma, Chachi delivered a wonderful performance.
Now, I am delighted to hear that the Atlanta-based musician is back with another concert.I gathered that the concert at Bole’s Ras Shewa Entertainment Center on April 5, 3 PM is entitled “Homecoming” and brings together a band called, Habesha Groove, Jungle Crew and DJ Sami.
Habesha Groove is real big venue performer and has been making name for itself in Duabai for the past two years.
The concert, which is described as a part of the millennial celebration, will include some of Chachi’s memorable old and new hits.250 homeless kids will also be attending the concert.
Chachi has been described as a Pan-Africanist singer for her socially conscious music.She is keen to stress the importance of her training in Jamaica with reggae stars, Buju Banton and Sizzler.
Chachi told Rose, a monthly Amharic magazine, that the concert is “a call for Ethiopians in Diaspora to come back home and do something for their country”. And she also said she is coming back home to settle this year..
I am looking forward to attend the concert.
