Product Description:

Recorded in 1975 & 1978. Includes liner notes by Francis Falceto and Anais Prosaic.
This is part of the Ethiopiques series.
Recording in the '70s in Addis Ababa, Ahmed mixed R&B with hypnotic Eastern vocal lines to create a most unusual style. At first the music seems familiar, with a lineup of guitar, bass, drums, and organ sounding like an ersatz Booker T and the MG's. But when Ahmed's keening, confounding voice joins in, listeners find themselves in new territory. The music is worthwhile just for its unsettling quality on Western ears. ~ Tim Sheridan
