Addis 1988 is the document of a moment in time when mulatu astatke was not yet the global ethiojazz superstar he is today, but a change was gonna come for him, and for the whole world. in ethiopia, the derg had started to tumble and fall; europe saw the wall between east and West gain more and more holes until it came down; Southern Africa witnessed Apartheid taking its final lap before Nelson Mandela was finally set free. With Ofra Haza's Yeminite Songs and Mory Kanté's 'Yéké Yéké' high on the international charts, music of the wider world finally entered the house of Western pop, giving high hopes and deep inspirations for many musicians who were previously excluded.
