Renaissance of melancholic music in Ethiopia

Ethiopia is experiencing something of a renaissance in Jazz and live music with a focus on traditional tunes.

One of those styles is Tizeta - literally meaning melancholy - which is sometimes described as Ethiopian blues.

The BBC's Emmanuel Igunza has been sampling some of the music in the country's capital, Addis Ababa.
