Feb in Addis

The first three weeks of February were filled with jam sessions and a couple of official shows in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.     Along with  Tommy T and Kirubel, my cohorts on this excursion, we managed 8 performances in all at various venues around the city.                         Though we played at several popular live venues like Jazzamba, H2O, and Guy's Bar, I would say the highlights were 1) our set at The Acacia Jazz and World Music Festival, and 2) our second night at Mama's Kitchen, where numerous musicians and artists from the Addis scene turned out to enjoy a feverish evening with us. My bandmates, Henock and Abegaz (the other two thirds of Admas), were also on hand for most of the performances (I'm hoping we'll get to do some Admas tunes the next time we get together).
