The charismatic Ethiopian Israeli rock star came to Israel as a child during Operation Moses – the mass “aliya” of Ethiopian Jews who made their way to the Promised Land via the deserts of Sudan in the appropriately named Operation Moses.  Gili performs in Amharic, Hebrew, and English, combining an Ethiopian musical legacy with genres such as funk, jazz, & soul. His band is made up of five musicians, including guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, and trumpet. Today Gili’s music gives a new meaning to traditional Ethiopian music. The expression of his story through an advanced music production represents his own personal triumph.

Gili Yalo music: Hyloga, Sab Sam and Zelel Zelel.
