    Addis Black Widow Addis Black Widow
    Quite simply one of the best albums of any genre released this century.
  2. Mulatu Steps Ahead
    by Mulatu Astatke
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Green Africa Green Africa
    While eight of the ten tracks on "Mulatu Steps Ahead" are collaborations between Astatke and The Either/Orchestra, recorded in London--with horn arrangements by the E/O's Joel Yennior--each track also features performances from musicians recorded in Addis Ababa, intimately and inextricably embedding the "Ethio" in an excellent recording of what Astatke calls "Ethio-Jazz".
  3. New York - Addis - London: The Story of Ethio Jazz 1965-1975
    by Mulatu Astatke
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Nètsanèt Nètsanèt
    From the opening notes of the compelling "Yèkèrmo Sèw" to the haunting end of the 20th track, "Tezeta" (both recorded in 1972), this is a spellbinding compilation. Each and every track deserves the designation "favorite". Buy this album -- Your mind, body and soul will thank you.
  4. Jaiyede Afro
    by Orlando Julius with The Heliocentrics
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Sangodele Sangodele
    A magnificent showcase for Orlando Julius, in collaboration with the incredible Heliocentrics. Songs alternate between vocals and instrumentals, and Julius is given plenty of room to do what he does best -- making compelling, foot-stomping, head-bobbing, booty-shaking music. Free your ass and your mind will follow.
  5. Death Of The Revolution
    by Quantic presenta Flowering Inferno
    Death Of The Revolution Death Of The Revolution
    The perfect mix of cumbia, the sounds of the Colombian Pacific and Caribbean coasts, roots rock reggae and dub.
