without knowing much, my ears tell me that this is older music in the service of newer gods... need to read about the ancient ethiopians before the christians arrived, the empire from which egyptian civilization owed much.
and this one... love the sound of those strings. timbre reminds me of prepared piano. anyone know the relationship of ethiopian lyre to the santoor feel free to drop a line. so simple, so rich, so efficient at what it does. (thanks to Rob Mcd for alerting me to these)
