BADUME BAND & SELAMNESH ZEMENE
ETHIOPIA / FRANCE, 8 musicians



BADUME "women Addis kan" (Ethiopia) (*)

BADUME is one of the few bands in Europe to explore the sound of vocal « ethio-groove ».

They rapidly played on stage with clarinetist AKLILU ZEWDIÉ and backed
two of Ethiopa's living legends, MAHMOUD AHMED and ALEMAYEHU ESHÉTÉ .

Today the breton band is meeting the fire of Ethiopian female voices,
an encounter with SELAMNESH ZEMENE & guests (women singer and
dancer).

Quickly check them out live! In December 2010 audiences from la grande
boutique in Langonnnet, the Quartz in Brest, Rocher de Palmer in
Bordeaux and the Africolor festival were the first witnesses to this
new show. SELAMNESH belongs to the Azmari, a nomadic community from the
Gondar region, 750 kms from Addis Adeba. She belongs to an artistic
collective residing in the FENDIKA club (azmaribet) in Addis, and led
by amazing dancer MELAKU BELAY.

Selamnesh Zéméné (lead vocal), Rudy Blas (guitar), Etienne Callac
(bass), Olivier Guénégo (keyboards), Pierre-Yves Mérel (tenor
saxophone, flute), Xavier Pusset (tenor saxophone), Antonin Volson
(drums), Jonathan Volson (percussions)
