Teddy Afro is a popular modern zafan artist of today. He retains original sound of zafan music, while adding a modern twist with electronic instruments. His talent has not only remained in Ethiopia, but he now travels to Europe and the US to perform. He even lived in Atlanta, Georgia for 20 years (Kaufman Shemelay). His time in the States may have had some influence on the new sound added to his music.
