Pan-African Hour: Return to the Ethiopiqes Series (Jan 12, 2010)

It's been a while, but we've finally returned to the Ethiopiques series put out by the Buda Musique label. This series just keeps growing, and is now at 27 albums. While in the past we focused more on the funky soul side of the series, in this episode we instead turn towards some of the more soft selections. From Ethiopian ragtime, to ethereal harp playing, there are many haunting sounds to be heard.
