Another look at Ethiopia, away from Goldman and miserable clichés. In the wake of uKanDanZ and their 2011 tour in Abyssinia. Groove, sweat, dance, dust, manars, spritz juice, furious ferndj, an azmari bet, shoulders that swoon, pumps and shoe shiners that party to their own music. Let’s step into the Horn of Africa, let’s take a look at the Mecca of Ethio-Jazz!
