various-ilita: new ethiopian dance music lp (terp)

Price: $13.99
Sold out!

Compilation of 2 new dance tracks on VINYL. The era of the Ethiopian big brass bands came to an end in the period of 1975-1991. After that, many great musicians were forced into exile or passed away. The horns mostly disappeared & were replaced by the awful overproduced pop - synthesizers, vocoders, drum machines & hasty productions that all sounded alike. In the last few years something new is emerging. Young producers have started combining traditional rhythms & strong dance beat production. The result is very original, uplifting & very danceable music. The gurage, wollo, gondar, konso & other traditional rhythms work wonders for this new dance music.
