We were saddened to learn about the death of Fessehaye Mebrahtu, owner of Oakland’s African restaurant and world music club, Oasis. Known to his friends as “Fish,” Mebrahtu was instrumental in generating a fecund reggae scene in downtown Oakland, long before the city’s entertainment district began to really flower. He was laid to rest Wednesday afternoon at St. Mary’s Cemetery, just a month before his fifty-fourth birthday. Mebrahtu will be mourned and missed by the East Bay’s world music community, and he’ll be remembered for more than a decade of popular DJ dance nights at Oasis.
