The project

A journey through the sounds and voices of Ethiopia, between the rural markets of small villages and the largest African market in Addis Ababa. An auditory route by means of listening to the transiting sounds that populate the streets from one village to another, from a school to a well.
An immersion in the sounds and images that aims to engage the observer in one of the possible sound portraits of contemporary Ethiopia.
This project stems from the ideas developed during the master in “sound arts” and has been realised thanks to an artistic residency conducted in March 2016 at the Italian Cultural Institute in Addis Ababa.
