posted on 09 / 04 / 2024


For today, I wanted to share with you “Tessassategn Eko“, an sweet Ethio Soul Jazz track with Jerk flavors, taken from the 1st single recorded in 1973 by the Ethiopian composer & singer Bahta Gebre Hiwot, with the help from Gebreab Tefera (words) & Girma Beyene (musical arrangements).

It was released in 1973 on “Amha Records“, prominent & legendary record label owned by Amha Eshete and that released 103 Ethiopian singles and 10 albums between 1969 & 1975, including some by mythical musiciansMahmoud Ahmed or Mulatu Astatke.

Those Ethio gems are getting harder & harder to find, especially in such clean condition, hope you’ll enjoy it !
