716 Exclusive Mix – Mitmitta : Blowing in the Horn of Africa Mix


01.01.16 - Guillaume

Kidus aka dj Mitmitta is one of the main record collectors based in Ethiopia. He runs the Mitmitta Muzika record label where he re-released, in collab with Domino Sound from New Orleans, a compilation of traditional wedding songs by Getatchew Degefu & friends. Another release is planned for 2016, so check it. Mitmitta is that spicy powder very muched used in Ethiopian cuisine.

After having released numerous successful mixtapes, mostly under K7, Kidus wanted to release something live. He invited me in his house for an afternoon session in his house in Addis.
