“One of Ethiopia’s greatest innovations, Ethiopian Jazz, termed “Ethio-jazz,” is a unique fusion of traditional Ethiopian music with jazz, Afro-funk, soul, and Latin rhythms. Marked by eerie and ancient-sounding tones, typical of traditional Ethiopian music, Ethio-jazz also displays the sensual undertones of soulful jazz.” – Lilian Diarra
A sensational collection of gems bless this 65 minute cassette. Malik Abdul Rahmaan and Paxico Records head Chris Hound’s offering is a glimpse at one Ethiopian Restaurant in New York they had eaten many a meal. The cassette was given to the duo by the owner.
The cassette flows with seamless dusty transitions and features an unprecedented amount of pleasant vibes within. From the jump this cassette delivers.
