Radia Show 498 | Ethiopian son


Ethiopian Son, this weekly Radia Show comes from Klangendum, former Worm Sound Studio in Rotterdam.


A collaboration that was staged during the Poetry International Festival between the Argentine poet Martin Gambarotta and X Static Tics (also known under names like Worm Sound Crew and Dr. Klangendum). Originally played live, it is an audio drama in which the text of Gambarotta almost forms a kind of score.


It's said that at some point in the twentieth century, the great Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa published an essay with the title My Son the Ethiopian. It was dedicated with mocking irony to one of his teenage sons who, while studying at an expensive London private school, had converted to Rastafarianism.


This is dedicated to all those who once were Ethiopian children.
