Getatchew Mekurya – Almaz Yèharèwa

I’ve been listening to Getatchew Mekurya a lot lately. This amazing Ethiopian sax and clarinet player’s career spans more than 50 years. The 14th edition of the Ethiopiques series is a reissue of his 70s album Negus of Ethiopian Sax. Almaz Yèharèwa stands out as the trippiest and the most hypnotic composition on this top-class instrumental album.
