Emahoy Tsegue-Maryam Guebrou - Mother's Love

Given its incredibly rich musical history, Ethiopia's relative obscurity on a worldwide scale is unfortunate. Nevertheless, Éthiopiques - a compilation series unmasking Ethiopian composition - is leading the movement to change this. This particular piece, 'Mother's Love', is from Éthiopiques 21. Emahoy Tsegue-Maryam Guebrou's composition is an intricate, delicate and balmy piano piece, understandably regarded as a lullabye by some.
