Balageru Cultural Club

Comedy in Bahir Dar

If you’d like an entertaining cultural experience and a good laugh, visit this place. Various azmari (local minstrels who perform a mix of music and humour) do their thing nightly (from around 7.30pm to 2am) to the rapturous joy of locals. If you’re brave enough to dance – if you're not, order a tej bet (honey wine) and you'll find all inhibitions drift away – you’ll win lots of friends.
