Alemayehu Eshete – Alteleyeshegnem

Alemayehu Eshete

 Articles from a variety of online sources. Words by Philophon

Alemayehu Eshete is considered the golden voice of Ethiopia. Since his first hit single “Seul” in 1961, he has become the father figure of the soulful stream of Ethiopian music.

In Ethiopia, no other musician adapted the newest trends from the US soul scene as consequently as Alemayehu did.

With this new 7″ he continues his soulful approach on Ethiopian music. His funky classic Alteleyeshegnem is here re-interpreted by the Philophon house band in an even funkier way than the original.

A tough beat is crisscrossed by mystic harmonies and a pumping bassline. Temar Ledje points out the sweet side of master Alemayehu.

This is another classic tune that comes dosed with a rejuvenating cure by the Philophon production team. Just listen!

Alteleyeshegnem is out now via Philophon – buy from Bandcamp.
