BBE Music w/ Ernesto Chahoud

Ernesto Chahoud was born on May 1981 in west Beirut, five years after the Lebanese Civil War started and one year before the Israeli invasion. Amidst the chaos and horror of the civil war, Ernesto found a love of Jazz, Blues and Fusion with records found at various flea markets. His love developed from the Middle East and into Africa, particularly Ethiopia. Find out more about his incredible story here,

Released last year on the ever brilliant, BBE Music, Ernesto Chahoud’s ‘Taitu’ is a collection of soul-fuelled stompers straight from the dancefloors of 1970s Addis Ababa. A breathless journey through the unique Ethio sound that bands were forging at the time, the 25- track compilation is the result of the Lebanese DJ and crate digger’s decadelong love affair with the ‘golden age’ of Ethiopian music.

For fans of, Ali Farka Touré, Nana Love, Gilles Peterson, Tony Allen.
