Badume's Band & Selamnesh Zéméné
Since 2007, Badume’s Band has tasked themselves with the joyous mission of bringing the golden age of Ethiopian music to new eyes and ears. In Selamnesh Zéméné (Debo Band, The Nile Project), considered one of the country’s golden female voices, they find a likely and powerful ally; with the singer contributing her poetic leanings and Azmari origins-marked influences - namely, her knack for improvisation -, they are one of Ethiopia’s prime musical ambassadors. The group, along with the young diva, brings to life their studio repertoire on stage, dazzling audiences across several European venues with their high-energy grooves.
