A few years ago the world discovered a unique sound coming from the distant Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa. The emotional blow was only matched by the brightness of this original and magnificent discovery. The "Ethiopiques" series directed by Francis Falcetto and edited by Buda Musique provides a comprehensive landscape of this subtile musical universe where local and western cultures do magnify each other.

This new "Ethiopian Urban Modern Music" release follows the first "Soul & Groove" installment and keeps revealing some essential parts of the modern Ethiopian puzzle. An unequalled soul funk signature until today. Includes tracks by Girma Bèyènè, Seyoum Gèbrèyès & Wallias Band, Hirut Bèqèlè, Samuel Bèlay, Mahmoud Ahmed, Muluqèn Mèllèsè, Assèlèfètch Ashiné & Géténèsh Kebrèt and Gétatchèw Mèkurya.
