We are proud to announce you the first release within the framework of our collaboration with the series éthiopiques (Buda music). What could be more logical, than to begin by one reviews sweeping the 28 volumes already released on CD. And who of better placed than Francis Falceto, himself, who cooked the tracklisting and wrote  the  liner notes. A double vinyl gatefold in which you can find at the same time the “classics” by Mulatu, Mahmoud Ahmed, Tlahoun Gésséssé but also some much rarer and less known titles. In brief, a panorama of the Ethiopian music from the 60’s and 70’s which will delight as well the newcomer as well as the specialist.
