Oromo music from Ethiopia via the singer Hallo (or Hello, Haloo) Dawe. The raw recording and effusive performance contained herein is worth the lo fi and almost anxious feeling of the whole scenario. Get buck with the unhinged acoustic guitar accompaniment below a sharpish, tense female vocal exposition. Thanks to Mitamitta and Andreas for sending me this one.

OH YEAH--Bola Remixes digital ep coming out next week. Features reworkings of Bola tracks by ITAL, Lamin Fofana, Miles Seaton (akron/family) and Blue Hawaii (Icy Demons), and Anzano & Palermo (Magic Touch/Mi Ami)!

thank you, at least for track 6-9-10, the others fail.

many greetings

oops, thanks, fixed those.
Do you think you could provide a scan of the back of the inlay card? I could probably transliterate the track titles then.

hi, maybe stupid but I have the feeling while listening that I hear a tape that should be played on a 48-minute tapedeck instead of a 45-minute tapedeck (taking a c-90 as standard). so to say I think the music sounds pitched up somewhere. Do you think this is just my ears are hearing it wrong?

thanks anyway for this great music

This is fantastic! Thanks Brian.
I agree with a previous comment, music seems slightly faster than it should be.

Sounds ace though either way...
Reminds me of a night I spent in an local asmariebeit in Addis Ababa about twenty years ago.
Amazing, I'm in love! Thanks a lot for sharing,
here are the tracks at a slower speed
