Compilation of contemporary urban Ethiopian dance music produced by Mesele Asmamaw (of Ethiopiques fame) and compiled by Terrie Ex and Emma Fischer. Includes a 24-page booklet of photos by Andy Moor. "The era of the Ethiopian big brass bands came to an end in the period of 1975-1991. 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."
