Chalachew Ashenafi Fano
The last word from this Azmari, who died in 2012 an improvisatory, provocative, humorous musical commentary on Ethiopian politics, religion and everyday life. Excellent 40-page booklet.



Mulatu Astatke Sketches Of Ethiopia
An upful mixture of originals and traditional Ethiopian tunes charted for the big-band jazz and funk of the twelve-piece Step Ahead (John Edwards, Byron Wallen and co), with plenty of the great man's vibraphone.



Hailu Mergia And His Classical Instrument Shemonmuanay
A one-man-band evocation of the traditional accordion sound of his youth, adding a Moog, Rhodes and beat box. Light and fleet-footed, but questing and utterly heartfelt. Switched-on Ethiopiques from 1985.



Ethiopiques 28 Ali Mohammed Birra
The Imperial Bodyguard Band singer, who tuned his guitar like an oud. Oromo reasoning about love, existence and resistance, with a tasty Arab twang. Mississippi presented him on vinyl recently.



Alemayehu Eshete
45s from 1967-74, blending Ethiopian groove and folk, soul and rock 'n' roll.



Mahmoud Ahmed
Almaz, the legendary Ethiopian singer's first LP, heavy and hypnotic, accompanied by the Ibex Band in 1973, on the eve of the break-up of Haile Sellassie's Imperial Body Guard Band.



Ali Birra Ammalele
Imperial Bodyguard Band singer alongside Mahmoud Ahmed and Tilahun Gessesse who tuned his guitar like an oud. Oromo reasoning about love, existence and resistance, with a tasty Arab twang.



Getachew Degefu, Lemma Gebre Hiwot Wedding Songs
Originally released on Philips Ethiopia in 1973: a mixture of modern and traditional instruments mark the stages of an Amhara wedding. Hand-screened covers, with wedding photos and liner notes inside.



Staring Into The Sun
Unflinching yet freewheeling and wildly poetic, Olivia Wyatt's visually stunning film of thirteen Ethiopian tribes, complemented by a 136-page book of Polaroids and a CD of field recordings.




Ethiopiques 27 Tessema Eshete
Precious relics from Berlin, 1908. UNESCO has stumped up for a lavish presentation, with fine notes and translations; but surely the fly in the ointment is the difficulty of actually listening through the music.



Mulatu Astatke Timeless
With jazz giants like Bennie Maupin, Azar Lawrence and Phil Ranelin, the great man on stage in Los Angeles in 2009, latinized in front of everyone.



Ethiopiques 1 Golden Years Of Modern Ethiopian Music, 1969-1975
Music from the Amha label run by Amha Ashete, driving force of modern Ethiopian music.




Ethiopiques 11 Alemu Aga
With virtuoso self-accompaniment on the beguena an oversize ten-string lyre, the oldest instrument played in Ethiopia: religious songs as well as traditional fables, folk tales and poems.
