Sun Hop Fat

Sun Hop Fat

 Oakland, California, USA

The finest Ethiopian dance factory since 1972...


Sun Hop Fat is a 10 piece groove and jazz band based in Oakland, California. The group reinterprets music from the Swinging Addis period of Ethiopia. The music that Sun Hop Fat creates is at once haunting and soothing. The band takes the listener on a ride through their senses. The music is shapeshifting sometimes it's a tempest of noise and other times a calm ripple of horns, vocals, and rhythm. Sun Hop Fat is a band that will go right to your hips.
