JazzAmba is the first Addis club to play live Ethio-Jazz every night of the week. Every evening in the dimly lit den of cool, the DJ plays different hazily hypnotic jazz music from all over the world to set the mood before the bands step up to play a crowd-pleasing set of Ethio-Jazz classics. Among the audience are several dapper chaps in top hats sipping cocktails, while the walls are covered in record sleeves depicting legendary and young Ethiopian musicians as well as those who play at the Lounge.
Check out the weekly schedule:
WEDNESDAYS: Wednesday nights at Jazzamba Lounge, the Ethiojazz funk group Nubian Arc, featuring the legendary Alemayehu Eshete is a guaranteed fun night
