Ethiopiques 2 Urban Azmaris Of The 90s
The azmaris were originally wandering minstrels, roaming the Abyssinian countryside. These varied snapshots of the musical life of Addis Ababa in the 1990s are offered as a kind of homage to them.



Ethiopiques 20 Either Orchestra
The Boston-based big band live in Addis in 2004, with special guests Mulatu Astatke and Getatchew Mekurya.



Ethiopiques 21 Emahoy Tsegue-Maryam Guebrou
Unmissable, wonderful solo piano. Chopin, Tatum, Satie and company, steeped in the Ethiopian sound.





Ethiopiques 24 Golden Years Of Modern Ethiopian Music, 1969-1975
Like volumes one and three, drawing on the legendary Amha Records catalogue, with several newcomers to this fantastic series, and a couple of very early Mulatus. You know what to do.




Ethiopiques 26 Mahmoud Ahmed And Imperial Bodyguard Band
The great singer in rambunctious, rootsy and jazzy recordings from 1972-4.



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.



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.



Ethiopiques 3 Golden Years Of Modern Ethiopian Music, 1969-1975
Sublimely tilted like Sun Ra, rocking like James Brown at the Apollo, the tracks here by police bands are a reminder that Ethiopia at the time had no independent modern groups.



Ethiopiques 4 Ethio-Jazz And Musique Instrumentale, 1969-1974
Presenting the musical giant, keyboardist Mulatu Astake that's him on the sleeve with Duke Ellington.



Ethiopiques 5 Tigrigna Music, 1970-1975
The music of Tigray and Eritrea where the majorities speak the Tigrigna language is rhythmically and melodically different from Ethiopian music.



Ethiopiques 6 Mahmoud Ahmed
His first LP, Almaz, originally released in 1973.
