ADP016 – The Ethiopian Journey / A travel into the Ethio sound of Addis-Abeba back in the 70’s

Hi dear readers !
I’m actually in the Southern France (remember St Tropez ?) for 2 weeks, tanning near the deep blue sea, drinking ti punchs and mojitos, but I’ve prepared something special for you !
I wanted for a loooong time to do an Ethiopian selection, (but I wouldn’t because I think the Ethio sound is too “a la mode”..), so here are 9 tracks taken from several seven inches intended to make you (re)discover the beauty and the deepness of the Ethio sound from the 70’s.
Ethio Jazz, Ethio soul, Ethio groove or Ethio funk, nevermind how you can call it, this music sounds like no other, because of the Ethiopian Pentatonic scale, that was a source of inspiration for many musicians of all genre.
Hope you’ll like it !
