Destinations Podcast: 11. Ethiopia

For our 11th episode of the Destinations Podcast we embark to another African area, Ethiopia. A fusion of the eerie rhythms of ancient Ethiopian tribal music with the soulful undertones of jazz and the funky bounce of Afrobeat, Ethio-jazz had its heyday in the 1950s and 60s but in recent years has been making a slow but unmistakable comeback in the country?s capital.
