Music from Eastern Africa

 We already visited Southern and Central Africa. Unfortunately we cannot stay for a long time in each region. We have to keep going. But we will come back! So, greetings to Eastern Africa!

 The sound changes. Here we meet dance-floor jazz, funk and soul mixed with African and Arabic influences. We even come to listening to something like Americana inspired folk rock (Geoffrey Oryema). And, of course, a great female voice, Aster Aweke, wont be missing!
