Editorial Reviews

Hailu Mergia is a one-man band. In 1985, master accordionist and veteran bandleader, arranger and keyboardist released the Hailu Mergia & His Classical Instrument cassette. In a nostalgic effort to bring back the vintage accordion sound of his youth, Hailu gave Ethiopian music a sonic makeover. He was already celebrated for his work with the groundbreaking Addis Ababa ethio-jazz and funk outfit Walias Band. With imagination and a visionary sense of the self-contained possibilities of modern music, he captured the popular sounds of the past using the modern tools of the day.

My All-Time Favorite, the one and only the talented and gifted Hailu Mergia. I have great respect for this man. I used to hang out at Ibex club on Georgia Avenue when I was going to college. His music brings back so much good memory. There are some things that never get old. Hailu Mergia's music is one. The Tche Belew (Kaifa, 1977) album is one that I had with me for the last 40 years.

Hailu Mergia's beautiful, hypnotic music deserves wide attention as a treasure of World Music. This lovely collection of mainly instrumental songs skillfully blends Ethiopian 'classical' music with jazz, blues, and other forms. It is timeless music that uplifts the soul. Thank you, Hailu, and the record company that has reissued it.

I bought this CD on a whim...the first track left me wondering if I had done the right thing...
the rest of the album dispelled any reservations...if it were vinyl or a tape, one would just keep on flipping it.
It has the hypnotic pattern of a harmonium heard in a temple..but with a groove laid over it that speaks of a broader church.
Great!
