American violinist and composer Kaethe Hostetter celebrates a monthlong residency at Brooklyn’s legendary listening room Barbès. Each Saturday in November Kaethe will dig deep into her experiences living and making music in Ethiopia, transporting audiences the bustling streets of Addis Ababa. Kaethe will perform both as a solo artist and with a rotating series of guests and collaborators, including Thalia Zadek, Monk Earl, and Lioness.
November 25th: Kaethe Hostetter’s Impressions of Ethiopia & Lioness
Lioness is the new trio of Kaethe Hostetter, Samson Kebede (Arki Sound), and Django Carranza (Fully Celebrated Orchestra), for deconstructed Ethiopian traditional and “Golden Era” Ethiopiques tunes– using electronics, soaring delay, twisty scales, tricky riffs upon cyclical patterns, familiar Ethiopian melodies pushed into distant primal realms.
