Drummer and Composer, Abinnet Berhanu, grew up in Hampton Roads but calls Washington home these days. Over the past 7 years, Abinnet has been creating an environment that brings together the sounds and stories of his life as an Ethiopian musician, while paying respect to the long standing tradition of jazz. The Abinnet Berhanu Group has made many appearances throughout the region. They have been described as “[finding] their calling in an explosive yet seemingly effortless cross-section of the sounds they know and love best.” (The Commonwealth Times) Abinnet has had the fortunate opportunities to be able to share the bandstand with notable musicians including: Steve Wilson, John D’Earth, John Clark, Wells Hanley, Tom Varner, Michael Hawkins, Vincent Chancey, Russell Wilson, Weldon Hill, Justin Kauflin & Charles Owens.
