– I've no idea if he's played it, but this would fit right in with a Gilles Peterson show, which often has a treasure or two buried in peripheral rebel genres, for want of a better phrase. Of this artist, Bandcamp says: Ethiopian-born Jazz Musician Kibrom Birhane mixes Spiritual Jazz with Ethiopian Jazz motifs to create a unique and deep sound that resonates across many cultures and musical concepts. His understanding of Jazz and improvisation is unparalleled among Jazz artists in the world today.
