Podcast: Radio Mukambo #483 – One Who Grooves

Azmari is the “one who praises” in Amharic, an Ethiopian singer-musician, comparable to the European bard or the West African griot. The Brussels-based ethiogroove collective is a 21st century version of Azmari, blending African and oriental melodies while providing a fresh take on the ethiojazz sound. Their debut album Samā’ī is album of the week on Radio Mukambo, out on Sdban Ultra / L’Autre Distribution.

We also listen to Brazilian and Jamaican reggae, African hiphop and four tracks of the new NYP Records compilation Global Riddims Volume 4.
