Hey, long time lurker, first time poster. I'm going to be in Ethiopia, mostly Addis Ababa, for about a week, soon. Wondering if anybody knows some hot places to dig in Addis? There's got to be places, right?
Places to dig in Ethiopia...?VinylEthiopia

Welcome to the forums!
Lucky you, I'd love to go digging in Ethiopia.
Never been there but I was intrigued so I did some research
First there seems to be a big open flee market in Addis Ababa called The Merkato, and there are apparently some small record shops in there: https://www.flickr.c...abo/2295747755/
There is a record store called Mitmitta Musika in Addis too, here's their website: http://mitmitta.tumblr.com/
Finally here's what someone who has dug in Addis before and is familiar with Ethiopian artists has to say about the subject: http://www.addistune...e=news_page.tpl
Hope you'll enjoy your trip and find some gems!

i assume everywhere, isn't the landscape mostly barren and savannah-y?
look at this, you just take your shovel and dig wherever you want; those guys ^ aren't gonna fucking care, look at them, they're doing the same thing.

Ethiopia is a beautiful country but still, JF wins the internet for today on that one, an online joke hasn't cracked me up that hard for a while that's for damn sure

I guess the imperialist 'Italians' ventured over there to occupy for a spell. so their culture is debased for fear that the public would know who the bad people really are...

Damn. Thanks, even for the jokes. What should I be doing and seeing when I'm in the country Mwboogie? Other than scourging for records.

Yeah u can probably find records at Merkato, but it's the biggest market in whole Africa (u can buy literarily everything over there, from camels to kalashnikovs). So u have to know where to look. And second, i would recommend to have a local person with u that can back u up and knows the language so he/her can negotiate for u , when visiting Merkato.
I had great results by just putting an add in a newspaper. Good look. And enjoy Ethiopia, make sure u visit butcher street And have a Avocado Juice for breakfast every morning! And also make sure u visit the fish restaurant on the market. Ask the them for the best fish restaurant and they will show u where to find it!
