I’d been searching trying to find electronic music outta Ethiopia and found this.
Soul Keita - Para(sol) - Democracy EP
I’m listening to this on REPEAT. At a couple points you can hear a lil bit of tradition Ethiopian music. I need to find more.
Who is taking the baton from Mulatu Astateque? ‘Cause as much as I love his work I would love for some new blood to come through.
Have been listening to Samuel Yirga, a talented pianist who worked on the Dub Colossus project, and while his take on Ethio Jazz in good and on the darker side of the pentatonic scale I am still looking for something totally different.
