Getatchew Mekuria & The Ex & Guests — Moa Anbessa ... CD 9.99

A killer combination of sounds – the searing tenor sax of Getatchew Mekuria and the raspy guitars of The Ex – brought together here in really unique cross-cultural formation! Mekuria's influence really transforms the sound of The Ex – bringing their anarchic spirit into a strongly Ethiopian mode – one that's further underscored by some great guest horn work on clarinet, alto, and trombone – used like the kind of horn sections you'd find on Ethiopian recordings from the 70s – which lets Mekuria really do his thing by soloing over the tunes with a great deal of feeling. There's a bit of vocals on the record from GW Sok, but the main vibe is instrumental – and titles include "Ethiopia Hagere", "Sethed Seketlat", "Musicawi Silt", "Tezeta", "Almaz Yeharewa", "Che Belew Shellela", and "Eywat Setenafegagn".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
