Alemayehu Eshete - Ayalqem Tedengo

Not untypical of Ethiopian music, Ayalquem Tedengo is a song with undeniable charm: an uplifting groove coloured by dancehall pianos, guitar licks and utterly loveable vocals - towards the end, Alemayehu Eshete laughs his way through the final "ay ay ay..." A wonderful cover version by French band Akalé Wubé is available here.
