Monde de la Musique : SHOCK!
Fantahun Shewankochew, vocals & lyre krar
Ejigayehu "Gigi" Shibabaw, vocals
Wores G. Egziabher, vocals & spike fiddle masinqo.
This CD is consecrated almost entirely to Amharic music, with the exception of one Tigrean instrumental piece and song. Grouped under the single theme of love songs, these traditional songs, or songs composed in a traditional style, have been drawn from the aristocratic repertoire and the repertoires of the azmari minstrels. A veritable vocal art, praising the beauty of both Ethiopian women and countryside, accompanied on the lyre krar or on the spike fiddle masinqo.
