Bug Description

libechonest has been removed from Debian unstable, with the rationale that it uses an external API that no longer exists (Debian bug #862551). tomahawk-player depends on libechonest, which prevents libechonest's removal. Either the Kubuntu team needs to take responsibility for libechonest and fix it so that it's usable, or tomahawk-player needs to be fixed not to depend on it, or tomahawk-player needs to be removed from the archive.
