Ground Heights is an Israeli-Ethiopian band that combines the Amharic language and traditional rhythms from Ethiopia with new and modern songs that offer the authentic voice and sound of the members of the young generation of Ethiopians in Israel. The Ethiopian rhythms are given a contemporary, modern sound, rendering the bands performances colorful and danceable celebrations. The members of Ground Heights aim to preserve their native culture while morphing it into original statements displaying the richness and power of Ethiopian language and culture. Hosted in the performance is musician Liron Amram, regarded as the harbinger of the new wave of Middle Eastern music, which connects it to rock, pop, disco, electronic music and of course, the Yemenite music of his father, Aharon Amram, the leading vocalist of the Yemenite community.
