Ililta – New Ethiopian Dance Music

CD

✈

Contemporary grooves from the Ethiopian scene – and work that's almost as compelling as the 70s classics we've dug in the Ethiopiques series! The package illustrates a real revival in the Ethiopian scene of late – a bit of a return to older styles of instrumentation, while still keeping things somewhat current as well – yet often without any use of beats or electronics, as you might find in some other contemporary African scenes. Most of these numbers are highly rhythmic, but in an old school way – and the vocals are often as offbeat as the instrumentation, which includes keyboards, guitars, and some nicely-tuned horns. Titles include "Awdamet", "Ye Gonder Lidj Netch", and "Memyew" by Chalachew Ashenafi, "Ye Salame" by Asfaw Tsege, "Ayada" by Zweyosh Abeye, "Wube Abeba" by Tesfay Wube, "Desse Lay" by Mohammed Jimmy Mohammed, "amamesso" by Habtu Demse, and "Ababille" by Etenesh Girma.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes slipcase.)

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

A heady brew of unusual music from the Iraqi scene – material that's billed here as folk and pop, but which has a quality that's a lot different than those genres might sound in the US! The folksy cuts often have angular reed work in the mix, which really gives them a sharp edge – ... CD

An overlooked gem from the 80s years of Fela Kuti – and a set that has the Afro Funk genius working with strong studio help from Wally Badarou! The vibe's still as fierce and frenetic as Fela's classic material – each track takes up a full side of the record, with lots of hard rhythms, ... CD
