Heavenly Sweetness - ETHIOPIAN HIT PARADE VOLUME 1
Reissue of the original ethiopian vinyl album / RĂŠedition du vinyle originale ĂŠthiopien
After releasing around fifty 45 rpm singles and his first 33 rpm album (Ethiopian Modern Instrumental Hits AELP 10, re-released by Heavenly Sweetness HL092VL), Amha EsthĂ¨tĂŠ set about compiling his best 45s on a series of now legendary albums (the originals are impossible to find) in 1972.
An audacious, funky outlaw, a music lover and an entrepreneur in tune with the baby-boomer generation, young Amha EsthĂ¨tĂŠ (he was only twenty-four when he launched his label) will be remembered as the instigator of a peaceful revolution thick with soul and rockânâroll.
The tracks on this first volume celebrate pioneers of modern Ethiopian groove such as Girma BĂ¨yĂ¨nĂ¨, Seyfu Yohannes, TĂ¨shomĂ¨ Meteku, Menelik WĂ¨snatchĂ¨w, Mulatu Astatq and Muluken Melesse, alongside tradi-modern singers representing Amhara (Essatu TĂ¨ssĂ¨mma) and Oromo culture, so rich and so long marginalised (AbbĂ¨bĂ¨ TĂ¨ssĂ¨mma and GĂ¨mĂ¨tchu Itana).
