This is another great entry in the Ethiopiques series. Subtitled "The Harp of King David," AlŠmu Aga sings accompanied only by his harp, which is really closer to a kora than what Westerners might consider to be a harp. "The Harp of King David" has a darker, more buzzing sound compared to a kora, and it suits Aga's rich voice beautifully. This is a lovely, intimate recording that stands apart from others in the Ethiopiques series in its general tone and stripped-down elegance, as opposed to the swinging cosmopolitan sounds of many of the others in the series. Recommended. ~ Sean Westergaard
