Without any doubt is the Ethiopian culture within all great ancient one of the most fascinating. Here at the interface of the Arabic-oriental world and the sub-Saharan Africa, Christianity, Islam and nature religions mix and one of the worlds oldest monarchies faces a colorful mix of ethnicities and tradition. The capital Addis Ababa represents all of this in a dazzling and explosive way. We were guided through the African metropolis by an intimate connoisseur of the scene: Melaku Belay, cultural ambassador and president of the Ethiopian Dance Association.
