A Town Called Addis was inspired by meeting, writing, and working with singers and musicians in Addis Ababa in August 2006; it is a collaboration between Dub Colossus (Nick Page) and these amazing musicians covering Azmari and traditional styles as well as the popular singing styles of the 60s and 70s. It seeks to combine the golden years of ethiopique beats (popular again thanks to the release of the critically acclaimed “Ethiopique” compliations) and ethiojazz with the dub reggae styles of early 70s groups like the Abyssinians and the Mighty Diamonds…”along with a hint of Sun Ra…” says Nick Page.
