Synopsis

Product Description
Like Ethiopiques 1 and 3, this CD presents a selection of powerful pieces from the
historical Amha Records catalog. We meet again with such artists as Ayaléw Mèsfin,
Gétatchèw Kassa, and Sèyfou Yohannes; and are introduced to other artists as yet
unreleased or hardly known in the West, among them Menelik Wèsnatchèw, Seyoum
Gèbrèyès, Tamrat Molla, and Wubshèt Fisseha. Bonus tracks include two pieces by a
young Mulatu Astatqé, recorded in the early sixties when he was under the influence
of the Latin and Caribbean scene of a burgeoning swinging London, as well as two
pieces by The Ashantis, a highly influential Kenyan band from the early 70s.
