Various local Ethiopian artists shine on a stage in Footscray

Ethiopian artists living in Melbourne have entertained crowds at the Emerge in the West festival.

Presented by Multicultural Arts Victoria in partnership with Maribyrnong City Council Festival City Program, Emerge in the West brought Footscray’s Nicholson Street alive on Saturday 4 June with some of the West’s top emerging talent in music, art, fashion, dance and spoken word across three stages.

The festival's main stage featured Melbourne’s inimitable Ethio-jazz maestros JAzmaris alongside Nhatty Man with his new band Gara, Seble Girma and the iconic Ethiopian celebrity singer Bitsat Seyoum.  Below are our photos showing the performance of the Ethiopian artists.
