Join Solomon Sisay as he launches his debut album Sitota. Written by Solomon and fellow Ethiopian artist Nhatty Man ናቲ ማን, Sitota is a tribute to the Ethio-Jazz modes endemic to their homeland, and a fitting salute to the saxophone’s role within Ethiopian Jazz. Since becoming popularised under the reign of Emperor Haile Selassie, who had a fondness for military brass bands, it is rare to hear an Ethio-Jazz jam without it.
