An afternoon of Ethiopian + East African
Jazz, Soul, Funk & Folk Rhythms


In his monumental project, Wondem (Amharic for “Brother”), Dexter Story distils his diverse background in soul, funk, jazz and folk idioms into his own unique and worldly voice. Borrowing from Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sudan, Somalia, and Kenya, this collection of East African-influenced music is a testament to Story’s decades of dedication to artistic excellence.

With numerous credits and albums released on labels such as Soundway & Kindred Spirits, a former member of Build An Ark and The Life Force Trio, accompanist to the likes of Kamasi Washington, Madlib and many others, Dexter is one of Los Angeles’ most revered musicians, composers, and humble spirits of music.
