Last night in Damrosch Park, the New Jersey radio station WFMU in collaboration with Lincoln Center's "Out of Doors" concert series presented the who's who of modern Ethiopian music. The show included pairings such as the Ethiopian sax king Gétatchèw Mèkurya with Danish rockers The Ex, as well as Boston's Either/Orchestra performing with the audience favorites Mahmoud Ahmed and Alemayehu Eshete.
