info 

This is the long awaited debut release from the Addis Abeba based folklore group Ethiocolor, a band which has become much appreciated due to their vibrant live shows and their ability to bridge the gaps between the past and the present.
On this album three generations of musicians and singers have joined forces to explore some of the rich music traditions found throughout Ethiopia. The band combines the Azmari culture from the northern part of the country with diverse regional sounds. By using amplified versions of traditional instruments, the group is pioneering a new way of playing Azmari music.
It is the creation of a unique Ethiopian sound by beaconing voices from the past and making them part of the present.
The album is produced by the Swedish producer and musician Andreas Unge and was recorded in Selamís studio in Addis Abeba. The full 11 piece band and dancers have been selected to showcase at this yearís addition of WOMEX tradefair in Galicia, Spain,
