Ephrem Tamiru - Aynua

There is something incredibly rich and deft about Ethiopian music, especially that of the 1970s and 80s. The distinctive sound is packed with vibrant guitar, stunning grooves and polyrhythms, and most strikingly the harmonious vocal style. Ephrem Tamiru's 'Aynua' is just that. From 1977 - when the rather contrary punk movement was picking up speed in the West - 'Aynua' is a joyous jam, epitomising everything that was just so right about Ethiopian music of the time!
