thank you for being so patient! We are very near to sending you the album, which is now #30 in the incredible Ethiopiques series! We’re very proud of it and cannot wait for you to listen to the music!
We will soon be receiving the digipaks and we’ll quickly mail out all the goodies you signed up for! We still do not have a precise date but you will all be receiving your CDs around the 13th of January (depending where you live!), and the vinyls (which now will be a double vinyl!) will be shipped soon after in February.
Thanks again for your generous support throughout this amazing journey!
We want to remind any of you residing in Paris that we will be playing with Girma on the 18th January at the Alhambra as part of Festival aux Fils des Voix! More info here : https://www.facebook.com/events/230484727365431
Happy holidays everybody!!
Much love, Akalé Wubé
Dear backers and friends,
We are very excited and proud to announce some very good news :
The album recorded with Girma Bèyènè which you have so generously funded, will be released on Buda Musique as part of the prestigious ETHIOPIQUES collection, curated by Francis Falceto.
For those who are new to this name, the Ethiopiques consist of a series of historic albums which have brought back to life all the great Ethiopian musicians, and helped bring their music to people all around the globe. It is also through this collection of recordings that we had discovered and decided to delve into Ethiopian music!
We are very proud and humbled to be featured side by side such great inspirations like Mahmoud Ahmed, Mulatu, Girma, Alèmayèhu and so many others.
Our album will be number 30 in this collection.
… and for all Parisians, do not forget that we will be launching a new season of concerts at the Studio de l’Ermitage with a first gig on Saturday 8th October : https://www.facebook.com/events/156484951469184/
Dear supporters and friends,
We hope you have had (and are still having) a good summer. We've been quiet for a while but it's time for an update. After a long recording process, the album is in an advanced stage of mixing and will be soon ready to go to press!
It has been wonderful to work with Girma on his music, giving it our Akalé Wubé treatment and as a result, producing a lovely album which we can’t wait for you to hear!
So this is a little note to remind you that all this has been possible thanks to your support and we owe this album to you, our fans!
And to all Parisian friends : remember that we will be reopening the live concert season at the Studio de l'Ermitage in October!
We will be in touch again very soon.
