KUTU: A Franco-Ethiopian project streched between Addis Abeba and Paris

KUTU was born in Addis Abeba where Théo Ceccaldi, a multifaceted improvising musician, met the symbiotic voices of the two ethiopian singers Hewan Gebrewold and Haleluya Tekletsadik. It is a journey through the feverish nights of a 2020 underground Addis, where an hyperactive youth captures ancestral musics to better free themselves from them. From nowadays poems, and collected ethiopian tribal rhythms, Théo Ceccaldi conceived a telluric set where improvisation, soaring of voices and punk energy meet, supported by a strong rhythmic section and a line-up with catching energy: electro-cosmic keyboards, primitive percussions, hypnotic bass, exalted dances and stellar voices. A glowing ethiopian trance combo, where the freedom of jazz merges with the raw depth of azmari sounds.
