Ethiopia Part 2: Diaspora and Return
(As part of Afropop’s celebration of Black History Month, this is the first of a three part mini-series on the stories of three very different African and Brazilian Diaspora communities in the U.S.)
Afropop Worldwide’s Hip Deep takes us into Ethiopian Diaspora communities in the United States and Israel, and also in Addis Ababa itself, where new winds are blowing. Harvard’s Kay Kauffman Shelemay and Ethiopiques CD producer Francis Falcetto provide expert insights. We visit Dukem Reastaurant and Nightclub in Washington, DC, and meet singer Hana Shenkute. We also speak with Idan Raichel of Israel. Produced by Banning Eyre.
