about

“Gedawo” is an Ethio-funk classic by the great singer Ayalew Mesfin. Recorded live in Ethiopia by the Debo Band, the A-side version features background vocals, clapping, and traditional drumming by the group Fendika, Debo’s vibrant collaborators from Addis Ababa. A perfect vehicle for charismatic Debo-frontman Bruck Tesfaye, Gedawo is a rousing dance anthem performed by a contemporary 15-piece funk powerhouse. In stark contrast, Kiddid’s B-side “Gedubwo Mix” swaps drum kit and sousaphone for drum machine and square-wave, flipping the tune on its head into digi-dub territory. A chugging Tubby-esque take on the raucous original.
