I love how Web 2.0 and a lax enforcement of copyrights is making it possible to access cultures from all over the world, I can see Russian TV-shows, and music videos from Ethiopia, things that I could never even buy before (perhaps in Toronto, if you knew exactly where to go, but certainly not in Norway). Ideally their exposure to the world will make people interested, and eventually there will be ways for these artists and creators to earn money through their work - not by DRM or restrictive copyrights, but through revenue sharing, voluntary payment, etc.
I have been interested in Ethiopia since I had a very good friend in high school from that country, and I snook into a few lectures on Ethiopian history at university; I had no idea the country was so special, and was flabbergasted to learn about the stone churches for example.
Either way, I wanted to share some great music videos from Ethiopia that I came across. (More here).
