Dedicated to the music of Eritrea, on this EP, Alma Negra showcase the music of the Saho People from the Region of Zula. Alma Negra's "Haleto Lale Lalô (Saho)": Complete with that global clarion call of partying it up, the ululate trill, this is again a call-and-response vocal pattern, seemingly at odds with the somber backing track. SOL's "Erytrea Nèdègé (Saho)": a previously unreleased edit from the band -- a minimalist percussive belter, driven along by an eerie vocal-loop, until a male vocal introduces the main melody that eventually bursts into a full call-and-response chant with a female choir.
