Zewdy introduces us to ethio-soul fusion

Written by Shirlene Brown | April 2, 2013 | Leave a Comment

We don’t hear enough of the contemporary artists of Ethiopian descent who do an excellent job of blending contemporary western genres with a traditional Ethiopian rhythm. There is Nhatty Man who melds rap and ethio-beats into  a funky hip-hop dance/rap genre which is both unique and exciting.  Wayna Wondwossen is more contemporary R&B, and very talented in her own right.
