Current release: Ayalew Mesfin and the Black Lion Band – Hasabe (My Worries). The last treasure trove of 70s Ethiopian Funk.

Ayalew Mesfin is among the legends of the 1970s Ethiopian musical scene – his music is some of the funkiest to arise from this unconquerable East African nation. Ayalew was forced underground by the Derg regime that took control of the country in 1974. Now, over 40 years later, his triumphant return – and the first time that his music has been presented in album form – gives us a chance to discover a rare & beautiful moment in music history. Read more about this important release here.
