Girma Bèyènè is a true legend of Ethiopian music. After exiling himself to the United States and disappearing from the music scene for 25 years, he has enthusiastically accepted Akalé Wubé’s invitation to join them and take his place as frontman once again.
This comeback happened last September during a memorable concert at the Studio de l’Ermitage in Paris. Tracks (Arte), Le Monde and Libération have all shared and published this major event which stirred strong emotions amongst Ethiopian music fans and beyond.
Of course, this adventure could not have stopped at that …
Under the direction of Francis Falceto (producer of the famous Ethiopiques series), Girma and Akalé Wubé will be joining forces again and enter the studio in May 2016 to immortalise this rebirth. The resulting album will be released in the fall of 2016 under the prestigous label BUDA MUSIC. And all our backers will be receiving this album before the rest of the world!
