A masterpiece of Ethiopian jazz has been reissued by Mississippi.Below is an explanation by the label. "On this gem of a 1976 record, the voices of Aselefek Asine and Getenesh Khebre sing in close harmony, and the two 'beauties' sing duets over 2 songs. Backed by eccentric musicians, the Army Band delivers Muratou-esque minor piano runs, interlocking percussion, and rock-steady basslines, while arranger Teshome Sisei's flute is flamboyant and exhilarating. The best elements of Ethiopia's Golden Age come together on one of the last records of this era: Aselefesh and Getenesh, in Addis at the end of the empire. Raised in the bustling, cosmopolitan world of Ababa, the two met at Addis' legendary center for arts and cultural learning, the Harger Fikr Theater, where they received centuries of vocal and acting training. BEAUTIES was a hit and sold out as soon as it was released in 10. However, its glory was short-lived, as the Derk regime imposed a severe crackdown on music and artistic expression. Artists (and most musicians) targeted as allies had to keep a low profile, and for 1 years almost all recording and live music was canceled in Ethiopia. One of the last great records of the golden age.Although we were unable to release a second record, Aserefek Asine is proud of her work.From her home in Addis, she says now." I have full confidence that if this album is released again, it will become popular and become a hit! Long in the making, this album is a collaboration between the artist and New Orleans powerhouses Domino Sound. Old-school "Tip-on" jacket specification. /// Click here to see more Mississippi Records releases...

"Canto A Lo Divino is the sacred music of Chile's Central Valley. This music is a community of worship and reflection for the peasants of this area, and it is played in packed rooms all night long after work. With guitars and 2-string heavenly guitarrons blaring with hypnotic variations, Kant has lived on for centuries in the voices of hundreds of men and women, apocalyptic, divine and Angelitos (dead little child). It conjures up a vivid vision, but the poem is also rooted in the daily life of the valley: labor, drought, the life cycle of families, animals and plants.Ancient, originating in Spain and reaching the Mississippi Delta from South America. Innumerable entnacions (melodies) are inherited in the ten-line rhyme decima, the song form of the , a combination that is captivating, transporting, cosmic, and terrestrial at the same time.

Mississippi Records, in conjunction with the Museo Campesino En Movimiento, has the privilege of offering an archive of hundreds of hours of Kant's field recordings, a double LP containing 25 pages.

This record is a compilation of songs by Markos Vamvakaris, a virtuoso of Greek working-class music Rebetika.Below is an explanation by the label.Continuing Mississippi's exploration of the dark side of Greek music, Markos Vamvakaris, one of the most legendary artists of the Greek rebetika, presents 12 rarely heard recordings of addictive pain and love.Rebetika is the sound of Greece and Asia Minor clashing during the civil wars, mass population exchanges and anarchy of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.A poetic, wistful, bitter music, Rebetika was born in the Mediterranean port of Hasden (Tekes), and its poetry was in no small part driven by a series of remarkable recordings by his Markos Vamvakaris in the 1930s. , was whispered in a Greek prison before spreading to more people.Marcos (the first name any Greek music fan will know) sang and drunkenly sang love, pain and longing in the brothels, bars and hash dens of Piraeus port. In 1917 he arrived in the port of Piraeus as a young man and worked as a skinner in a tannery. When he got his hands on a bouzouki in 1924, he was fascinated by the life of the lowest social class in Greece, the Mange.They lived by their own laws, dressed, walked, and spoke in their own style, in complete opposition to others. Rebetika was their music. Recorded in Athens between 1932 and 1936, Marcos was already a bouzouki virtuoso with these early twelve pieces.His strong, clean playing complements his hoarse voice and excellent sense of rhythm that comes from his years of experience as a Zebekiko dancer.The song spirals, his open-note drones and melodic lines evoking ecstatic voices and encouragement from his fellow musicians.The music of the Ottoman cafés, the voices of the Greeks taking refuge in Smyrna, the turmoil and suffering of port life, all come through in Marcos' songs. This is a very rare remastered version that appeared in the recording scene in the early 12s and was recorded in a short period from 1930 until the lyrics were censored by the government.There were no Rebetika recordings under the Axis occupation, and Marcos had several hits in the years after the war, but he never reached this level again. A dazzling, mesmerizing and heaviest work by one of the greatest artists of the 1936th century. " Labels and other works /// Click here to see more Mississippi Records releases...
