You never forget your first Ethiopian record. Thank you budamusique.com for all those coffins full of treasures.
I grew up listening to Tezeta by Seyfu Yohannes and this reminds me of my childhood :)
Thank you for sharing cannot stop listening!!
You're welcome. I'll make a Volume 2 somewhere in the future.
I love it! Do you understand Amharic?
No, I don't understand Amharic, but I suppose the lyrics are as touching as the music?
1000x times better ..
F***ING AWESOME. I've always been curious about that "Ethiopiques" series, and now I'm kicking myself for never checking one out!
I picked up Vol. 8 "Swinging Addis" and am really diggin it. I think I'll go for a more jazz oriented one next time. I AM hooked. Thanks again! I also pushed your mix on some friends, and that's going over well.
Vol. 4 is the most jazz oriented I think. It features Duke Ellington on the cover, and the tracks are by Mulate Astatke, who is still touring! Enjoy!
Oh neat. I have a recent album by Mulatu Astatke & The Heliocentrics (which I really like), so it'll be cool to hear where it started.
