Excellent modern recording of what is variously called Azmari, traditional or cultural music in Ethiopia. Played on krar (lyre), masinko (one-string violin), kebero (small drum kit), with vocals, the songs are drawn from various ethnic groups.

This is the kind of music you would hear in a nightclub/restaurant in Addis Ababa, very well done.

Format: Audio CD
Out of London comes an Ethiopian music group with energy, joy, spunk, and some very fine dance music based on traditional folk tunes from various regions of Ethiopia. The main instrument is very ancient and elementary, with 6 open strings, but when electronically amplified becomes strikingly modern; it is the krar harp. Acoustic and bass krars are also featured in the album along with masengo fiddle, wasinit flute, kebero drums, and some additional percussion. The group of three musicians are Temesgen Zeleke (harpist, flutist, fiddler, vocals), Genet Assela (vocals), and Robel Taye (percussionist and vocals). While in their homeland, they performed at the National Theatres of Addis Ababa. Because there are 80 different tribal languages in Ethiopia, we can expect likewise various musical styles. The 10 tracks over 58 minutes give a taste of these distinctions. The album is recorded on analogue 24-track tape (an LP is available) and digitally mastered for CD and mp3. Despite the simplicity of instruments, the arrangements are cleverly done and the album is interesting throughout. The musicians perform with enthusiasm and regard for their role in conveying Ethiopia's rich musical heritage.
