Impressions of Ethiopia

Impressions of Ethiopia

Sourcing from her 11 years living in Addis Ababa, Hostetter transports you to the bustling streets of the East African metropolis, evoking the crackling sounds of a saxophone blaring out of a barbershop radio, a shepherd's flute melody turned dub reggae, the fervent dancing on packed dirt floors of a rural honey-wine bar, and the funky big band psychedelic sounds of Ethiopia's "Golden Era".

Impressions of Ethiopia is Hostetter's most personal and mature musical work to date. Based on her years living in Ethiopia, Hostetter uses violin and electronics to draw on a variety of influences and impressions of her adopted hometown of Addis.

This solo multimedia project uses electronics and loops, storytelling, video projection to share a personal journey and be a door to a world that is now undergoing serious ethnic conflict. She has performed this work in NYC at Brooklyn Bowl, opening for Antibalas and Bombino. Now, she brings this beautiful new work to Baltimore at Le Mondo.
