KUTU’s ethio-trance is music to dance to in the first place.
KUTU is essentially a trio of two singer from Addis Ababa – Haleluya Tekletsadik and Hewan Gebrewold – and a French violonist Théo Ceccaldi with the jazz background. On stage and in the studio they’ve got the company of very energetic drummer, keyboard player and bass player.
Together they’re like fire, or maybe fireworks. KUTU’s ethio-trance is music to dance to in the first place. However, when you sit back to get some rest it will be as enjoyable and fascinating with its bristling ingredients that come from all places yet totally make sense together – but well, the title “Guramayle” comes from mixing languages.
