A political exile, Zeleke Gessesse, was compelled to leave his dearest country of Ethiopia after the country fell into a devastating condition of political concealment and monetary difficulty. He moved to the United States, where he sought after examinations to college level, and concentrated eagerly on building up his thriving melodic profession. In the long run, Zeleke was joined by his siblings and kindred artists from Ethiopia. As a melodic aggregate, they framed a band called Dallol.
Zeleke's band was marked in the mid eighties to Bob Marley's TUFF GONG name. In 1984, Zeleke's melodic advancements and gifts earned him an encouragement to join Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers. For a long time, Zeleke filled in as a basic individual from the band, visiting the world, and resounding Jah's message to the majority.
All through his residency with The Melody Makers, Zeleke was a key supporter of the collections Conscious Party and One Bright Day. Specifically, his melodic information was basic in the improvement of the tracks "Tomorrow People," and "Dark My Story," two of the groups most prevalent and broadly worshiped tunes.
Amid his fruitful melodic vocation Zeleke could, in the long run, sufficiently aggregate funding to seek after a fantasy he had since a long time ago harbored. He had constantly longed for owning and working a world class, unrecorded music setting. His vision was to make a scene where the best Reggae and World Music craftsmen could grandstand their abilities in a positive domain.
In 1986, Zeleke turned into a fractional proprietor of The Wild Hare, which is situated in Chicago, Illinois, and he has put over the most recent 24 years putting his essence in to making it into something really exceptional. The consequences of Zeleke's diligent work are prove by the commended notoriety The Wild Hare presently appreciates on a global scale.
Notwithstanding The Wild Hare into the regarded setting it is today, Zeleke has recorded constantly, delivering and playing out his own otherworldly music. His widely praised collections incorporate Come to Me, Out of Africa and Selam. The varied melodic imbuement one hears in Zeleke's music is really novel. He regularly utilizes Ethiopian and reggae rhythms.
Verses are sang in both Amharic and English - with a splashing of Jamaican patois blended in too. This one of a kind music brings about a satisfying, signature sound which has accumulated him a wildly faithful after. As most faultfinders concur: Zeleke's music is genuinely an irregularity in its all inclusive capacity to move, illuminate and engage.
Despite the fact that particularly a melodic symbol in Chicago, Zeleke's heart has a place with his country. Truth be told, his definitive dream is to manufacture another Wild Hare, alongside an account studio, back home in Ethiopia. He discharged his fourth collection Ayzone in 2015.
