Imperial Tiger Orchestra "Addis Abeba" 2010

Imperial Tiger Orchestra is a fantastic Swiss group who plays modern ethiopian music (well, from and inspired of the golden age 1969-1975), support them here and here. The group started in 2007 as a jam orchestra, and you can still hear it, sometimes they just blow you away - lovely horn and rhtyhm section. Addis Abeba is all instrumental, the track Aha Gedawa is a nice example where spiritual afro-jazz meets traditional ethiopques. Very groovy!
