Munit Mesfin Free Outdoor Concert

Saturday, July 11 at 4 pm 

Corner of Carroll Avenue and Central Avenue 

Munit Mesfin is an Ethiopian-American singer-songwriter who loves sharing Ethio-soul in musical sets that dip into new and old genres. She loves to get the audience singing along in English and Amharic. She will perform with Argentine guitarist and composer Cristian Perez in the Roadside Attractions concert series co-sponsored by Viaduct arts salon and the City’s Takoma Park Arts series.

Over the past decade, Munit performed in a duet based in Ethiopia that toured around the world, reshaping the contemporary Ethiopian music scene with a pop sensibility. Since returning to the United States, she has performed with various groups that re-imagine jazz, reggae, funk and soul.

Audience members should wear masks and practice social distancing during the concert in a driveway at the corner of Carroll Avenue and Central Avenue. Traffic will be blocked on the street and some chairs will be available, but people also can bring their own lawn chairs. Please join us and hear some live music!
