Orchestra Ethiopia

Profile:
Ethiopian orchestra of up to 30 traditional instrumentalists, vocalists, and dancers from many different Ethiopian regions and ethnic groups. It was the first ensemble of its type, as these diverse instruments and ethnic groups previously had never played together. The orchestra was led by Tesfaye Lemma. The ensemble disbanded in 1975 because of the Derg revolution in Ethiopia.
