Imanuel Yerday

Imanuel
Imanuel is an international singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who has been writing and composing songs since an early age. His musical quest has taken him from the Middle East to Europe to North America to Ethiopia—and his singular sound was born amid these experiences. The result is his socially engaged lyrics and multilayered instrumentals and arrangements that draw on world, roots reggae, soul, rock ’n’ roll, and traditional Ethiopian music.
With dBlack Lion, Imanuel’s brand-new, self-produced, 13-song original album, he joins with acclaimed musicians from Paris, New Orleans, Brooklyn, and beyond to arrive at unique lyrics, melodies, and rhythms. Imanuel boldly expresses, protests, and unites through his music—and dBlack Lion is his mystical and urgent roar.
