Medhane toured widely in the mid-’90s, working in the road groups of Zqulah, Mama Booker, and Culture Knox, while Noah landed a record deal with Virgin Records in 1992, eventually releasing three singles and an album with Virgin under the name Anbessa.
The brothers reunited musically in 1996, and began calling themselves the Nazarenes, releasing their debut album, Orit, in 2001 on Insteel Sounds. A concept album, Songs of Life, was released in Europe by Heartbeat Records in 2004 and was reissued a year later in the U.S. by Rounder Records. Displaying a firm grounding in classic roots reggae, the brothers’ skilled writing and arranging skills give them an added pop dimension, and with an Ethiopian background, they were one of the most unique groups to hit the reggae scene in years.
