A new project put together by producer Tony Buchen and Ethiopian singer and masenqo player Dereb Desalegn to faithfully record the music of 1960s-70s Ethiopian soul. Putting together a 9 piece band including a 5 piece horn section of some of the finest horn players in the Antipodes and fresh off a plane from Addis master organ and piano player Danny Seyfu, the set of 11 songs was recorded by Tony using only gear that pre dates 1970. In doing so Tony and Dereb have recreated the feel of the dusty Ethiopian soul records that have started to once again become popular worldwide.
