Addis Ababa: Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio Concert Introduces New Sound

The first Ethiopian concert of the Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio, on Tuesday night, was a smashing success. At Addis Ababa’s National Theater, the Orchestra’s traditional world music repertoire was enriched by new sounds brought by Ethiopian folk music band Ethiocolor and local dancer Melaku Belay. 800 spectators attended what has been called the concert of the year in the Ethiopian capital. The concert was organized by the Italian Cultural Institute and the Italian Embassy in Addis Ababa as part of the program of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs entitled “Italy, Cultures, Africa”.
