City Stages: Gili Yalo

The Case Western Reserve University community is invited to a City Stages concert featuring Tel Aviv-based Gili Yalo Friday, Sept. 7, at 7:30 p.m. on the Nord Family Greenway.

Combining Ethiopian roots music with a modern touch of jazz and soul, Yalo incorporates traditional sound into the music of right now.

Yalo’s family was part of the migration to Israel of Ethiopian Jews fleeing famine in Sudan; the music encouraged Yalo and his family to keep moving forward in their journey.

The Cleveland Museum of Art and FRONT International will present this free outdoor concert.
