This unique and innovative band project combines some of the most outstanding electro-acoustic musicians in Addis Ababa. Ralf Werner, the german jazz cellist, electronic musician and sound composer appears with outstanding young Soloists from Addis:
- Meskerem, one of the most lovely singers from Addis, she is well known from TV "Ethiopian Idol" and is writing also own lyrics.
- Beniam, THE one young Addis´guitar talent between Jazz and Rock, playing in Hiltonü´s Band and for several CD-recordings. - Desu, the drummer with the best drummer´s voice in Addis, also part of Hilton Band.
Ralf´s exotic groove music carries Pop & Ethio remixes as well as Jazz standards and chilling Ethiopian, European and American original sounds. Ralf´s latest compositions and Ethio-Jazz-remixes includes recent sounds from Addis and other parts of Ethiopia: the noises of streets and markets, rain and thunder and of course the people and animals of the city. Addis Chill Sounds also performed with the Ethio-Swedish poet and painter Ermias Ekube and prepares a program with Ethiopian dance soloists.


From February to April 2017 our singer Meskerem was substituted by the young, beautiful and brave singer Addis. See her here in Concert in Capital Hotel / Addis Abeba, 24.02.2017.
