about

PRESS :

Rolling Stone
“...This cocktail of vintage jazz-funk Eritrean music is the UFO which will make us regret that the aliens have been so discreet all this time...” (Philippe Blanchet)

BBC 1
“...Definitely one of those records to play at the end of the night...” (Gilles Peterson)

France Inter
"...A slightly new-yorkish, sober jazz-funk ... it is a true revelation..." (Arnaud Viviant, Système Disque)

“...Inspired by an ethiopian sound, Akalé Wub´ churns out a retro-futuristic soundtrack which makes you dance head to toes...” (Allo la Planète)

France Info
“...To relish...” (Info Musique)

RFi
“...The quintet’s repertoire draws from “ethio-jazz” greats (Mulatu Astatké, Alemayehu Eshete, Mahmoud Ahmed...) and proposes a subtle chemistry between faithful covers and fresh arrangements, revisited standards and rarities as well as personal compositions...”

Libération
“...Akalé Wubé from Paris, a mix of garage rock and vintage jazz, with a touch of soul…and a small dose of reggae...”

about

Akalé Wubé Paris, France
