Kuku Sebsebe - Benafequote Newe

This song from Kuku Sebsebe takes an uncharacteristically simple approach to Ethiopian pop; but the results are none the worse for it. The smooth organ introduction leads into catchy horn hooks and, unsurprisingly, beautiful idiosyncratic Amharic vocals. All the finest Ethiopian musicians seem to be connected some way or another, so it comes as little surprise that Sebsebe has sung with the Roha Band and Alemayehu Eshete among others during her fruitful career.
