I’m really enjoying this new album and you might too.
Beyond Addis is a compilation of new music by bands around the world who are inspired by 1970s Ethiopian jazz and funk. To be clear, I don’t know anything about 1970s Ethiopian jazz and funk, but this album is great: moody, sweeping, a little exotic, a little familiar, with a fast pulse and a drowsy-woozy manner.
It’s great stuff. Give it a listen.
