From the New Sounds Live concert series, the Either Orchestra, the Massachusetts-based brass band, plays arrangements of classic Ethiopian pop music, with special guest Mulatu Astatqe, one of the leaders of the Ethiopian pop scene in the late 60s/early 70s. The E/O's innovative and tricky "Ethiopian Suite" was a definite show-stopper. Hear it and other works recorded at the World Financial Center’s Winter Garden Atrium this past fall of 2004.
