Young Ethio Jazz Band

Jul 25, 2013

The Young Ethio Jazz Band consists of teenagers who rock out to their parents' music. The Oakland-based band played its first gig in San Francisco, now they're slated to play at Yoshi's (a famous San Francisco jazz club) and the Ethiopian Heritage Festival at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. The World's Sam Harnett talks with the band, all second-generation Ethiopians between 11 and 16-years old.
