✨✧ Mahmoud AhmedEre Mela Mela (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Hannibal, Late 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Grooves unlike anything else you've ever heard in your life – an assortment of mid 70s tunes from Mahmoud Ahmed, the second grooviest Ethiopian artist, next to Mulatu! Ahmed's sound is a lot more out there than Mulatu's – less funky and jazz-based, and more in the mode of snakey rhythms, complicated guitar parts, and vocals that have a melancholy quality that's simply amazing. Titles include "Ere Mela Mela", "Ohoho Gedama", "Abbay Mado", "Atawurulegn Lela", and "Indenesh Gedawo". CD

✨✧ VariousEthiopiques Volume 19 – Mahmoud Ahmed: Alemye ... CD
Buda (France), 1974. Used ... $10.99
Mindblowing work from Mahmoud Ahmed – one of the key figures of Ethiopian music in the 70s, and a singer with a voice that's beyond compare! The sound here is extremely hard to describe – at one level grooving with some of the funk and jazz undercurrents of the work of Mulatu, but at another level done with a deeper sense of modernism that makes the tunes come across even more starkly. The album predates Ahmed's seminal Ere Mela Mela album – and on some tracks, is harder and funkier –with rhythms that pulsate in a really hypnotic way! Instrumentation includes some great hazy keyboards, as well as a brace of horns that emphasizes the themes of the tunes – and titles include "Gubelye", "Alemye", "Wogenie", "Etugula", "Belaya Belaya", "Ney Denun Tesesh", and the amazing Tezeta".

✨✧ VariousEthiopiques Vol 6 – Mahmoud Ahmed: Almaz ... CD
Buda (France), 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Volume 6 of the fantastic Ethiopiques series is an expanded re-issue of the first lp by Mahmoud Ahmed plus his first single from 1971. While not as clearly influenced by American soul and jazz, there are a few funky cuts that are pretty nice! Most of these songs flow with a groove unique to Ethiopian music – and although Ahmed's songs appear throughout the Ethiopiques series, only one of these songs appears on other volumes ("Kulun Mankwalesh"). With the groovy "Nafqot New Yegodagn" and "Yasdestal". CD

✨✧ VariousEthiopiques Vol 7 – Mahmoud Ahmed: Ere Mela Mela ... CD
Buda (France), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Another great volume of Ethiopiques! Volume 7 of Ethiopiques series is another expanded re-issue of an LP by Mahmoud Ahmed originally released in 1975. Though there seems to be an abundance of songs by Ahmed from 1975 on volumes 1 and 3, we can't find any overlap with the songs on this album. The songs are the same sort of fusion of American soul and jazz with shuffling rhythms of Ethiopian music. Features "Belomi Benna" and "Bemen Sebeb Letlash". CD

VariousEthiopiques Volume 10 – Tezeta: Ethiopian Blues & Ballads ... CD
Buda (France), 1970s. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
Excellent stuff – even if this volume isn't as funky as other numbers in the Ethiopiques series! Instead, the tracks are soulful and bluesy numbers – half vocal, half instrumental tunes, with a really dark approach, and backings that are spare and extremely haunting. The vocalists are amazing – with a wailing crying tone that really sets the mood of the CD – and the instrumentalists follow suit with moody solo work on guitar and tenor sax. Titles include "Eyetegnu Negu" by Frew Haylou, "Hedetch Alu" by Mulequen Mellesse, "Tezeta" by Mahmoud Ahmed, "Tezeta" by Menelik Wesnatchew, "Gubelye" by Mulatu Astatqe, and "Alteleyeshegnem" by Alemayehu Eshete.

✨✧ VariousMore Ethiopian Soul & Groove – Ethiopian Urban Modern Music Vol 3 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Buda/Heavenly Sweetness (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mad music that's unlike anything else we can think of – a killer collection of funky grooves from the Ethiopian scene of the 70s – offered up here on a vinyl-only compilation! The set's a great one if you've heard the music of Mulatu, but want to dig a lot deeper – as the cats included on this set are most of his contemporaries from the golden years of Ethiopian music – and most of them work in a similar offbeat, other-worldly sort of style! Rhythms are skittish, horns are hypnotic, and the vocals on some of the tracks have a weird appeal that really transcends the boundaries of language – almost like another instrumental element that fits in wonderfully with the heavy grooves underneath. Titles on the collection are pulled from various volumes of the Ethiopiques series – making this set kind of a distillation of all its greatness. Tracks include "Yebeqagnal" and "Ene Negn Bay Manesh" by Girma Beyene, "Queresh Endewaza" by Samuel Belay, "Ewnetegna Feqer" by Hirut Bequele, "Lomiwen Teqebeletch" by Mahmoud Ahmed, "Gedamay" by Getatchew Mekurya, and "Metche New" by Asselefetch Ashine & Getenesh Kebret.

✨✧ VariousEthiopiques Vol 3 – Golden Years Of Modern Ethiopian Music 1969 to 1975 ... CD
Buda (France), Late 60s/Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Volume 3 of this Amazing collection of Ethiopian pop/jazz/soul recorded 1969-1975. Volume 3 is more clearly influenced by American soul music than other volumes – and the songs mix more traditional Ethiopian styles with grooves of the JBs and Curtis Mayfield variety. A great place to start with this collection – and filled with excellent work by Mulugen Mellesse, Tadele Beqele, Tiahoun Gessesse, Hirut Begele, and the great Mahmoud Ahmed! CD
