While all sorts of music are accessible to lovers of diverse sounds, Ethiopia is often regarded as the forgotten musical continent, the missing link within the pan-African harmony. Brassy, electric, urban pop has exploded in ppularity after the fall of the dictatorship, providing a swinging and hypnotic, poignant yet funky sound to the streets of Addis Ababa. From the golden age of Ethiopian music (the 'Swinging Sixties') to the new generation of producers, the music in this disc is compiled by Francis Falceto to provide an overview of the wealth of sounds of this country

Mulatu Astatke (also written Astatq on French releases) is arguably one of the most influential and legendary musicians from Ethiopia. During the 1960s, he studied music abroad in London, Boston, and New York. He then returned home to Ethiopia armed with a love for jazz and Latin music. There he blended Ethiopian traditional music with the Latin-jazz he was so fond of to create a unique hybrid he called Ethio-jazz. Mulatu Astatke is first and foremost a composer but also a multi-instrumentalist, playing the vibraphone

On March 2, 1896, the Italians embarked on the final European conquest of an African nation, Ethiopia. With brilliant military intelligence and gallant generals at the helm, united and willed, the Ethiopian people fought their way to triumph over the Italians at the Battle of Adwa. The event ignited a lasting flame of hope, of freedom and independence in the hearts of Africans throughout the world. Haile Gerima, the director and producer, joins the voices of Ethiopian historians, elders, priests, poets and singers, capturing on film the powerful education and experience that shaped his consciousness. In a collage of Ethiopian landscapes, paintings, photographs and faces, the film illuminates one of the hidden sources of African empowerment

Mulatu Astatke gilt als der grosse Mann des Jazz' in Äthiopien. Der Vater des sogenannten äEthio Jazzä nahm diese Session mit der Band The Heliocentrics in London auf. Die Musik aus dem ostafrikanischen Land klang immer anders als die anderer Länder. Seit den 1950er-Jahren fand eine untrennbare und äusserst spannende Vermischung von westlichen Pop- und Jazzklängen mit perkussiven, rhythmusbetonten Traditionen statt. Diese Verschmelzung ist einzigartig. Eine klare Zuordnung zu etablierten Genrebegriffen ist kaum möglich. äFliessen, schweben, weben, den kleinen Individuumskörper im Bandkörper aufgehen lassen, das perfektioniert der äthiopische Musiker und Komponist Mulatu Astatke mit seinen Bands seit 40 Jahren. Sein endlos verwobenes Band aus Latin, Afro, Funk, Modern Jazz und äthiopischer Folklore entwickelt einen vielschichtigen Groove, der so kleinteilig wie ozeanisch ist. Einklinken und wegdriftenä ( ä ... dass diese Kollaboration des äthiopischen Bandleaders mit den britischen Freigeistern sehr gelungen ist. Exotisches Experiment trifft auf freien Funk. Groovy!ä (
