8 ETHIOPIQUES VINYLS!

The musical treasures of the Ethiopian 60′s music scene, one of the most interesting music out of Africa!

LPs reissues of albums taken from the amazing Ethiopiques CD collection of Ethiopian music. Since 1997 the series has been bringing the treasures of the Ethiopian music scene of the 60s and 70s to a wider audience, including some of the founding fathers like Mulatu Astatke, Mahmoud Ahmed and Tilahun Gessesse.

The series was known by the global groove diggers for years, but reached a larger audience thanks to the Jim Jarmusch movie “Broken Flowers”, which largely used Ethiopian jazz in its soundtrack. Some classic titles to be filed alongside Fela Kuti, Kenyan funk or Malian music.

These vinyls were previously released by l’Arome production.

Les trésors de la musique éthiopienne des 60′s et 70′s, l’une des musiques africaines les plus riches et passionnantes!

Des disques extraits de la formidable collection Ethiopiques qui depuis 1997, a permis de faire découvrir à un large public les trésors de la scène éthiopienne des années 60 et 70, y compris certains des pères fondateurs tels que Mulatu Astatke, Mahmoud Ahmed et Tilahun Gessesse.

La série est bien connue par les chercheurs de Global Groove depuis des années, mais a atteint une audience plus large grâce au film de Jim Jarmusch “Broken Flowers”, qui a largement utilisé le jazz éthiopien dans sa bande son.

Ces vinyles étaient déjà sortis et exploité par l’Arome production.

La plupart de ces disques sont des classiques de la musique groove à classer à coté des albums de Fela Kuti, des classiques de Funk Kenyan ou de la musique malienne.
