Wonderful record, originally released on cassette in 1985, soon after the Walias Band veteran settled in the US. (These days he drives a cab out of Dulles International Airport, Washington.)
It’s a one-man-band evocation of the traditional accordion sound of his youth, adding a Moog, Rhodes and beat box. Light and fleet-footed, but questing and utterly heartfelt.
Switched-on Ethiopiques, refreshing and lovely as anything. No doubt insufficiently solemn and inauthentically-authentic for World Music plod, but hotly recommended by us.
