1. An Ethiopian rock explosion. Traditional melodies, massive bass and drum polyrhythms, metal guitar assault, soaring vocals, dense electronic textures. A devastating energy blast! So far, there has been nothing this powerful and versatile that might be associated with “World music”. African Futurism at its most liberated and intense, a hard rock element unheard of in Ethiopian music, until now, it's The New Rock Revolution.
The ensemble cast drips with talent. Guitarist Michael Hailu supplies the force with huge metal riffs and a detailed harmonic sense. The dual vocals of Debekulu Tafesse and Hailu Amerga are complete contrast with each other. Back and forth, one after another, creating a completely unexpected dynamic that never let’s up.
The vision of this music is awe-inspiring. The raw talent, energy and power of the group is overwhelming. It is a musical earth quake the likes of which we haven’t seen in a generation. The next generation of world music has arrived with a mighty explosion. Stand and behold!!
