The Rough Guide to the Music of Ethiopia is a world music compilation album originally released in 2012. Part of the World Music Network Rough Guides series, the release contains two discs: an overview of the music of Ethiopia-focusing mainly on 21st century pop-is found on Disc One, while Disc Two features dub-style musician Invisible System. The compilation was curated by Dominic Raymond-Barker and Phil Stanton, co-founder of the World Music Network, who was also the producer. It is the second. Taking something of a break from their usual tendency to take a wide range of music from an area, the folks at Rough Guide have this time around focused their attention in on only one major aspect of Ethiopian music: the 'swinging '60s''. Admittedly, this is by far the most important period in Ethiopian popular music, with everything since being shaped, in some part, by the stars of the day. The sound is entirely unique, much like the rest of the nation's identity. The peerless Rough Guide series has been going now for very nearly 20 years introducing people to music they never even dreamt existed. One of their latest releases focusses on the music of Ethiopia & it runs the whole gamut of such, from traditional to modern & from local to overseas. Hec, it even features our old friends The Ex at one point. Louder Than Wars Paul Scott-Bates has been listening to the album & as youll see has been suitably impressed.
