about

ALEM ​(world in Amharic) is the 2nd release in a series of collaborations between The Hoodna Orchestra
and artist and performers from Ethiopia. The song was written and sung by The singer and poet DEMISU
BELETE to a tune by Ilan Smilan. It is an intense love song describing one's love as a cure to all pains and
woes.
BELETE's singing style is heavily influenced by the great singers from the golden age of ethiopian music,
especially Mahmoud Ahmed and Tilahun Gesesse. BELETE's deep voice, alongside the dynamic and
groovy performance by the Hoodna orchestra, creates a powerfull composition that sweeps the listeners
away to a different time and place.

The Bside is an Ethio-dub version of the song, that features members of ADYABO Ensemble, a group that
specializes in traditional Ehiopian music and Folklore.
The song titled ALEM-DUB​ is an attempt at fusing old and new, tradition and Modernity. The result is a
hypnotically groovy track, heavily painted in Bright psychedelic colours.
The single will be released in a 7" vinyl format.
