BADUME’S BAND & SELAMNESH ZEMENE (ET/FR)

Saturday 06.07.13 - 22:00 - Cosmopol

The 60s and 70s was a very special period in Ethiopian music. In the new millennium music collectors have discovered and distributed this musical treasure of golden funk, jazz, afrobeat and soul. The music of this period in time has a distinct beat, which is not found in James Brown or Fela Kuti. Clearly Badume’s Band is in love with these glory days and though the nine man ensemble consists of Frenchmen they earlier let their saxophones glitter as a backing band for the grand old man of the musical golden age; Mahmoud Ahmed. Led by the Ethiopian singer Selamnesh Zemene, Badume’s Band recreate the Addis Ababa of 1970. Together they embody not just a past but also a future of Ethiopian, urban music.

Label: Innacor / Import
