Tche Belew is a studio album by Ethiopian jazz and funk outfit Hailu Mergia And The Walias Band, originally released in 1977 via Kaifa Records.

Hailu Mergia is an Ethiopian synthesiser and organ player who was a member of the Ethiopian jazz and funk band Walias Band.

The acclaimed and highly sought-after LP by Hailu Mergia and the Walias, Tche Belew, an album of instrumentals released in 1977, is perhaps the most seminal recording released in the aftermath of the 1974 revolution.

The story of the Walias Band is a critical chapter in Ethiopian popular music, taking place during a period of music industry flux and political complexity in the country. Hailu Mergia, a keyboardist and arranger diligently working the nightclub scene in Addis Ababa, formed the Walias Band in the early 1970's with a core group of musicians assembled from prior working bands.

This album is a 2014 reissue on black vinyl, pressed in the US via Awesome Tapes From Africa.
