Ethiopia is home to over 80 ethnic groups, each with its own deep-rooted language and culture. Contemporary musicians living outside Addis Abeba, the capital, have little opportunity to record their mesmerizing sounds.
Sheba Sound is redressing this by recording and releasing high-end audio music of local stars..
So far, Sheba Sound have recorded more than 25 groups in 'pop-up' studios across Ethiopia.
Tracks from this compilation have been aired by: Giles Peterson, NTS, Late Junction, Chirs Menist, Nick Manasseh, King Shiloh, Francemusique, Dj Mitmitta, Sheger FM, Ahadu FM.
The recordings are also captured in the award-winning documentary film 'Roaring Abyss' by Quino Piñero:
