Ukandanz – Yeketelale (CD)

Ukandanz – Yeketelale (CD)


Yeketelale is the third album by the Franco-Ethiopian group Ukandanz. With the singer Asnaké Guebreyes, guitarist Damien Cluzel and saxophonist Lionel Martin, Ukandanz merges rock energy, saxophone zigzag and Ethiopian melodies. In the way of the Ex, but with here a more groove training than ever before. A burning call to dance, to trance.

“From Gesse, the first title, the machine is launched, hectic and feverish. Drums and bass (Yann Lemeunier and Adrien Spirti) hammer a ringworm rock, tenor saxophone (Lionel Martin) and roar guitar, while the singer’s panting voice wraps and unfolds in mesmerizing convolutions. The tone is given. It is energy that is here, powerful trance and compelling groove.. ” Patrick Labesse – Le Monde

“An otherwise synthetic sound, with electronic drums and analog synth. Kind of like if Asnake Guebreyes, at his hour of Glory, in the Eighties, had come to heat the dance floors Western. “Anne Berthod  – Telerama
