Duke Mushroom Presents Bole 2 Harlem Vol 1 CD by Bole 2 Harlem offers upbeat fusion of African music.

Bole is the entry/exit point for Ethiopia, and Harlem is the entry/exit place for African music in America. This record is the concept of ashagre: building a bridge between those worlds. Creating a space where they can both exist without musically or culturally diluting either one.

Rediscover the Revolutionary World/Urban record that Songlines calls “One of the 75 Best World Music Albums ever.”

Bole 2 Harlem Volume 1 is a party, a celebration, a gift back to Ethiopia. The World can Flow as One. Music is the frontier to pave the way.

Bole 2 Harlem Volume 1
was originally released in 2006 and immediately hailed as a global/urban music classic.

Bole 2 Harlem Volume 1 is an exciting and essential album that still sounds as fresh as the day it was released - and continues to attract new listeners.

“Ethiopian modes and rhythms [mesh] with crisp hip-hop loops, adding up to irresistible party chants.” --New York Times

“13 tunes distinguished by killer beats and an infectious blending of traditional Ethiopian melodies, funk and hip-hop. They’ve concocted a sound that’s a distinctive hybrid, an ethnocentric celebration.” –Billboard

“At a time when most African hip-hop mimics its American counterpart, Bole 2 Harlem is a refreshing and unique take on numerous genres, subsequently forging its own.” –Relix

“An exhilarating slice of Ethiopian hip-hop…the horns and beats wouldn’t sound out of place on any dancefloor anywhere on the planet.” --Times UK

“Astonishingly original! Fuses up-to-the-minute production techniques with deep flavors of hip hop, reggaeton, global music and the lore of traditional Ethiopian rituals - creating the intrigue of a new kind of Africa-inspired music recorded in NYC.” –MIX

“Giving a futuristic nod to classic Ethiopian jazz and funk, Bole 2 Harlem producer David “Duke Mushroom” Schommer stepped into the studio with a clear vision. He created one of the most fascinating takes on modern Ethiopian music this side of Bill Laswell. Hip-hop and soul vocal hooks are scattered throughout, but the overall effect is a caravan of nomadic spirits banging on heavy percussion, penetrative bass loops, and catchy harmonies. When the horns come blaring in, the anthemic battle cry is complete.” --XLR8R
