Music from Ethiopia
These recordings, give rich samples of the sounds of tradition in urban musical life. Ancient ceremonial music played on the embilta flutes or the ornamented vocal art of Alemayehu Fanta or Gebre Hiwot Lemma represent the older traditions. The Sne Bahel group accompanies traditional dances. Modern pop-music is represented by the Abyssinia band.
Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
