After a big success of his first LP released last year, touring around the world and getting highly lauded by international crowd, Gili Yalo comes back with his new release. Ethiopian origin, Israeli artist – Gili Yalo brings together more than two musical worlds this time. The new EP – Made in Amharica is a result of Gili Yalo’s cooperation with Niles City Sound - Grammy Awards nominees (Best R&B Album and Best Traditional R&B Performance for Leon Bridges’ LP “Coming Home”), production team consisting of Josh Block, Austin Jenkins and Chris Vivion. The EP songs reflect the cooperation between Gili Yalo and Dallas based musicians in the high-end vintage equipped recording studios of Niles City Sound Studio in Fort Worth's South Main. The EP consists of 4 songs – in English and Amharic. The title of the EP is a word play. Amharic is a language of Ethiopian people. Gili Yalo combines modern definition of Ethiopian roots, strong funky and jazzy influences with a deep soul feeling. Made in Amharica is something more – soul and RnB flavour of his music got strengthen by American musicians, production team and the best sounding analogue vintage sound equipment.
