Editorial Reviews

An extraordinary collaboration between contemporary Ethiopian artists and Dubulah (aka Nick Page) bringing hidden gems from Addis Ababa back to England. Dub meets dreamy blues, hypnotic grooves, jazz piano and driving funk brass. Flavours of traditional Azmari singing, 70s reggae and Ethio-pop infuse one of the most alluring and soulful genres of African music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Fusion from the Motherland November 29, 2008
By Jeevan
Format:Audio CD
Given Ethiopia's relevance to Rastafarian culture, using dub to blend various musical styles from modern-day Ethiopia with a down-tempo reggae under-carriage just seems logical. The result is something that you have probably never experienced before. First of all, if you think Ethiopian music is like any other "African" music, you are mistaken. Ethiopia is the only country in all of Africa that was never colonized. This means they held on to their language, culture, and most importantly, sound.

Blend that with the Dub stylings of Colossus and you have a unique cultural artifact that's simultaneously new and yet soulful and deep. And how can you beat Amharic lyrics? That's the heart of Zion.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little bit of everything... April 13, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Only 4 songs, I thought I was buying the full length cd. I really wasn't disappointed in my lack of attention to detail, though. The final song is a piano solo and quite lovely--180 degrees from the other songs on the ep. I thoroughly enjoyed it all. Now I'm going to have to buy the full length.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not What I expected August 19, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My bad. I didn't realize I was ordering an EP and not the full length cd. The cuts on here do not include the one I heard elsewhere. Mea culpa. Guess I better start paying attention. Then again, I don't read directions either. Nice company. Fast fulfillment. Couldn't ask for more.
