Music from the heart

Fortysomething Solomon Kehati is the right age to have imbibed an eclectic range of contemporary musical sounds as he made his way through his teenage years. In fact, however, the Ethiopian- born artist largely stuck to a strict diet of indigenous material. That will be duly conveyed at the forthcoming show by the Adyabo quintet, of which Kehati is a member, at Confederation House in Jerusalem on Monday (9:30 p.m.).

The concert is part of the lineup of the seventh annual Hullegeb Festival, which is devoted to Ethiopian-Israeli culture and was founded by the aforementioned cultural institution and its long-serving director Effi Bnaya. The program takes in a wide variety of musical, theatrical and dance works, which will take place at various venues in Jerusalem December 15-21.
