Inspired by their travel together among the poor in Ethiopia, Dan Clark and Israel Dejene gathered family and friends to record an Ethiopican (or Ameriopian) mashup EP. With an eye toward hope and romance, toward peace and parties, Dan and Israel brought together the sounds of several genres and the talents of more than a dozen artists.
