    On Mississippi Records we find this 2011 re-issue of
    Mahmoud Ahmed’s Jeguol Naw Betwa, with the Ibex
    Band. Originally released in 1978, wonderful Ethiopian
    stuff for which I make this exception in posting new
    material. Float away on these rare old tunes,
    simply irresistible..

    Vandaag maak ik een uitzondering en plaats een re-issue.
    Normaal gesproken slechts oude plaatjes maar deze in 1978
    origineel verschenen schijf is zoo fijn dat ik het niet kon laten.
    Op Mississippi Records en uit 2011, Mahmoud Ahmed en de
    Ibex Band nemen je mee op een Ethiopische zweef reis,
    gewoonweg onweerstaanbaar..

    P.S. label and back sleeve do not agree on track order,
    I stuck with the label track order..

    P.S. label en hoes van de plaat zijn het oneens over de
    volgorde van de nummers, ik geloof het label..

    tracks ;

    01 – Jeguol naw betwa
    02 – Neshtie
    03 – Fetsum dink lij nesh
    04 – Hoy na-na jegnaw na
    05 – Marie gela
    06 – Bemin sebeb lotlash
    07 – Anwedim tekatin
    08 – Endet lilakek
    09 – Gebtewat yihon fikrien?

    Do you know that 1989 BBC double CD, ‘Under African Skies’?
    When it first came to my ears I was blown away by one song specially.
    It is the last track on the album but it made an incredible impression.
    The voice of Bezawork Asfew is the most extraordinary, first time I heard
    it, it sent shivers down my spine, spontaneous goosebumps, tears,
    words can’t express how that felt, ever since I’ve been looking around to find
    her music. All paths seem to lead to the CD this track comes from. If anyone
    can help us to find something, anything she made, that would be super.
    With the help of the great series on Buda Musique, ‘éthiopiques’, I made a
    compilation of different versions of ‘T’zeta’ or ‘Tezeta’, a traditional
    that practically all Ethiopian musicians seem to have played, listen.

    After receiving all your tips, it seemed appropriate to post this fantastic
    Youtube movie, thank you very very much for enlightening me !!!


    1 Bezawork Asfew – T’zeta
    2 Mahmoud Ahmed – Tezeta
    3 Mulatu Astatqe – Tezeta
    4 Sèyfou Yohannès – Tezeta
    5 Menelik Wèsnatchèw – Tezeta
    6 Either/Orchestra – Soul Tezeta
    7 Tèsfa-Maryam Kidané – Tezeta
    8 Mahmoud Ahmed – Tezeta, long version
    9 Gétatchèw Kassa – Tezeta, slow
    10 Gétatchèw Kassa – Tezeta, fast

    Mahmoud Ahmed, front

    From Mali and Nigeria we go to Ethiopia, this music is unique
    in it’s kind. Terms like ‘Melancholy blues’, ‘Brassy Danceable
    Urban Jazz’, ‘Heart-wrenching’ are named but it remains hard to
    give a proper discription of this sound. Anyway, it is very nice
    and Mahmoud Ahmed is one of their Biggest artists, it was originally
    issued in 1975 but this is a recent re-release, listen !


    1 Abbay mado – Embwa bèlèw
    2 Atawurulegn léla
    3 Tezeta
    4 Ohoho gédama
    5 Ebakesh tarèqign
    6 Erè mèla mèla Mètché nèw
    7 Sedètègnash nègn – Samerayé
    8 Endénèsh gèdawo
