This is a reissue of the Ethiopian wedding song compilation album released in 1973.

-----------------------------

Amhara wedding songs, recorded in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia, 1973.
Issued with insert containing notes, biographies & photos.

"With a mix of modern and traditional instruments these fourteen songs go through the progression of an Ethiopian Amhara wedding sung in Amharic. With the trio of singers, Lemma G. Hiwot, Zenebech Tesfaye, and Selamawit G. Selassie, alternating turns at the microphone, and sharing call and response duties, a relentless frenzy of hand clapping incites dancing and smiles. The consumption of tedj (honeywine) and the swirling love of a wedding was captured in the studio with euphoric energy to take away to play over and over again when The festivities are over. With hand screened covers and an insert of wedding photos accompanying the liner notes, this is the next best thing to an invitation to the real thing. Originally released on Philips Ethiopia in 1973. A co-release between Domino Sound in New Orleans and Mitmitta Musika of Addis Abeba, Ethiopia. "
