Customer Review

on 6 September 2007
There is undoubtedly a buzz around Ethiopian music at the moment: Jim Jarmusch was determined to make it a key component of Broken Flowers and Gilles Peterson has been championing it on Radio 1. And it seems to have garnered a rather star-studded following: Damon Albarn, Elvis Costello, Robert Plant, Tom Waits and Brian Eno amongst them.

However, it's the reaction from my circle of friends that convinced me this music really has something: everyone loves it- from the heads to the most conservative of tastes, they all dig it. There are few albums I can play at a party that get respect from the music savvy without getting groans from the uninitiated (and vice-versa).

There's a great web site where I first heard the music, you can also watch clips, read reviews, discuss the music etc there. Don't think I'm allowed to include web addresses but do a search on 'The Very Best of Ethiopiques' and you'll find it. Enjoy!
