Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 collection. Urban Ethiopian music stands out within the African continent thanks to it's creativity and originality. Whatever the shade - pop, blues, jazz or soul - it comes from a fusion of local musical traditions mixed with an echo of Western music. It bewitched Ethiopia during the 'Swinging Addis' decade before recently winning the favors of a well-informed audience all over the world. This first vinyl volume of Ethiopian Urban Modern Music presents some of the Ethiopian 'groove jewels' drawn from the essential CD Ethiopiques series directed by Francis Falceto and published by Buda music.
