Addis Acoustic Project on RFI

September 24, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

The Addis Acoustic Project, a project that has been attempting to revive sounds of the ’50s and ’60s, has been playing regular gigs on the home front and has been making a name for itself. The group is also getting international media coverage.
The English Service of Radio France Internationale has featured the Addis Acoustic Project on its World Track program today September 24, 2010 in connection with the group’s performance at Copenhagen’s Womex performance.
In the twenty-minute segment which also includes a section on Staff Benda Bilili of Congo Kinshasa, the group’s founder Girum Mezmur is heard explaining the project’s beginnings and progress.
The RFI presenter says while Addis Acoustic Project shows some promise, there is still much work to be done to give the music more punch and originality. Listen to the program by heading over to this RFI’s link.
