Isaac Haile Selassie’s journey began in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where he grew up under the care of His Majesty, Haile Selassie, King of Ethiopia.

He always had a love of music and performed in Ethiopia where he was very well known.
When he came to the United States, he was able to pursue his musical career, writing songs and performing in many different venues, from Los Angeles to Colorado, Virginia, Montana and Canada to name a few. He’s played at most of the summer festivals on the West Coast and has always had the audience dancing and cheering.
Isaac works as a speaker as well. He teaches people about Ethiopian history and culture and has given talks at elder facilities, schools and conferences. He enjoys audience participation and is always lively and interesting.
