"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Tam tam

A little yuletide regifting: Allez-Allez's thrilling, non-denominational Xmas in Addis Adeba - a beat as dry as the Danakil desert overlaid with echoey, blurry vapour trails & then that keening voice...

Note to self: time to wise up about Ethiopian jazz (Mulatu Astatke cited in King Midas Sound's extravagantly eclectic 2009 best ofs)!

NB: higher-res version available chez allez. Photos by baldiri.

Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
