Imperial Tiger Orchestra - BBC Studio Session [2012]

                                                   R  E  U  P  L  O  A  D   

       Inspired by the golden age of Ethiopian jazz in the nineteen-seventies, in 2007 the Swiss trumpet player Raphael Anker got together a band to play, and play with, this extraordinary music. A trip to Addis Ababa to perform with and learn from the locals inspired them to record an album, taking Ethio-jazz as a starting point, but also bringing in influences from rock, jazz, funk and electronic music.
