Paul Weller – Mother Ethiopia Part 3 (No Tribe No Colour) [feat. Krar Collective]
Paul Weller, the godfather of all Mods, former head of „The Jam“, continues to push himself creatively and has recorded a brand new, thought-provoking track entitled “Mother Ethiopia,” which consists of three parts. “Part 1” enlists the help of modern soul band, Stone Foundation. Alongside this collaboration, there are two alternate versions of “Mother Ethiopia” – one with Bongo Bob, and the other a vocal version featuring London-based Ethiopian 3-piece Krar Collective with the lead vocals (in Amharic) by Krar’s Genet Assefa, which can be heard here. … Have a nice weekend!
