"This recording gives rich samples of the sounds of tradition in urban musical life in Ethiopia today. The ancient ceremonial music played on the embilta flutes or the vocal art of Alemayehu Fanta or Gebre Hiwot Lemma represent older traditions. The group Sne Bahel offers samples of singing and music which accompanies lively traditional dances from the Oromo and Wollaita ethnic groups. Modern pop music is represented in six tracks by the Abyssinia Band." "The diversity and quality of music featured is very impressive" -- Dirty Linen 1994. Artists: Gebre Hiwot Lema, vocals, masinko; Abyssinia Band; Yohannes Afework, washint flute; Asnakech Worku, vocals; Areru Shegane, embilta flute; Teka Tema, embilta flute; Yohannes Afework, embilta flute; Yared Orchestra; Alemayehu Fanta, vocals; Sne Bahel-Ensemble.
