Another striking volume in the always-great Ethiopiques series – this one a recent concert, done in honor of, and in the style of, the music on the previous volumes! The set was recorded in Addis Ababa in 2001, and is filled with some really great rhythms, snakey grooves, and some ultra-cool sax work that really sets a great tone for the album. Most tracks have vocals, either by solo singers or ensembles – trading back and forth in a call/response style that also adds a lot to the evocative feel of the record. Titles include "Bati", "Segota 1", "Segota 2", "Koko", "Belomi Benna", "Medo Hane", and "Ambassel".  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Buda (France), 2003. Used
A wonderful testament to the strength of Ethiopian music in the face of hardship – most recently, that of war, economic collapse, AIDS, and other factors that have all impinged upon the forces that help foster the nation's music scene. Swinging Addis may be no more, but the work on this CD ... CD
Buda (France), 2001. Used
One of the rootsier CDs in the Ethiopiques series – a set of work from the Konso subculture, mostly spare numbers performed on the kihayta, a really haunting stringed instrument that's vaguely like the lyre. Most of the tracks feature the kihayta, along with vocal and percussive ... CD
Buda (France), Late 60s-Mid 70s. Used
The 9th volume in this incredible series – and they're still going strong! The groove here is a mixture of funky tunes and more jazz-driven numbers – wonderful work from Ethiopia in the early 70s, with a range of influences that's incredibly hard to describe. There's bits of James ... CD
Buda (France), 2005. Used 2CD
An amazingly great set from Either/Orchestra – easily their finest album ever, and a wicked batch of Ethiopian funk! The set's a very faithful homage to the best Ethiopian styles of the 70s – with lots of echoes of the generation of Mulatu, who also makes a guest appearance himself on ... CD

An awe-inspiring mother lode of classic Guinean grooves from one of Africa's greatest bands! Senegal's Orchestra Baobab have become the media favorite of Africa's golden era, but it only takes one spin of this fabulous anthology to realize that Bembeya Jazz National were as good as any band the ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1970s. Used
One of the coolest Afro Funk groups of the 70s – and an outfit who definitely earn the "poly rhythmic" in their name! TP Orchestre have a jagged, jaunty sound that's totally great – really playfully rhythmic, in a way that breaks from the mold of most of their 70s ... CD
Buda (France), 2007. Used
One of the most wonderful collaborations we've heard in the Ethiopiques series so far – a set that mixes instrumentation from a cool French combo with vocals from Ethiopian singer Etenesh Wassie! Le Tigre have a groove that's rooted in jazz, driven by some rockish energy, and focused into ... CD
Na Poi/Zombie
Victor (Japan), Early 70s/1998. Used
2 of Fela's rarest from the 70's, out now on one Japanese CD! Tight funky African grooves, spread out over 4 long classics – "Zombie", "Mr. Follow Follow", "Na Poi", and "You No Go Die Unless You Want Die". "Na Poi" is one of the sexiest ... CD
Victor (Japan), Early 70s/1998. Used
Great stuff! This killer set pairs I.T.T., one of Fela's most memorable 70's albums, with the harder to find Opposite People set. Both albums are great, and they've got prime choppy Afro-funk grooves from the master of the genre! We almost never see these on vinyl, and although the CD's a bit ... CD
