Video Notes:


Utterly enchanting Ethiopiques edition, starring the totally unique saxophone sound of Gétatchèw Mèkurya. A real giant, both physically and musically. Not only is he at the very top level of Ethiopian saxophonists, but he is the "inventor" of an extremely distinctive musical "style".

The album features ten of Gétatchew Mekurya's arrangements, blowing a snaking, smoky and hypnotic stream of notes over very minimal backing of shuffled percussion, keys and organ.
