"Making its World Village debut, the Addis Acoustic Project, directed by guitarist and arranger Girum Mezmur, transports Ethiopia's instrumental popular hits of the 1950s and 1960s into the 21st century. Inspired by East-African, Jazz, and Latin musical styles, the group creates an intoxicating blend of sounds that Mondomix.com called, 'a gentle groove with carefully rounded edges.' Mezmur's stylistic revival echoes that of the famous Buena Vista Social Club, in its goal of bringing back the glories of lost traditions."
