LP version. Available on heavy 180 gram vinyl. Includes free digital download code plus bonus tracks. Limited to 500 copies. Eritrea is back. After 30 years of war with Ethiopia and a decade of seclusion, the Asmara All Stars now introduce some of the best musicians and vocalists from Eritrea on Eritrea's Got Soul. The Asmara All Stars continue to play in a style reminiscent of the golden age of the big band sound, charged with Eri-jazz, soul and roots reggae. The album was recorded in Asmara, Eritrea's capital city in 2008 with a heavy, analog live band sound featuring electric krar, a full horn section, a funky organ and haunting vocals by some of the country's most famous singers. A rebirth of urban Eritrean music from the depths of the country's rich history.
