Release #15 in Mr Bongos Africa 45 series.
‘Aynotché Tèrabu’, featuring Equators Band, was original released on Amha Records, Amha AE 920 A in 1975. This one has been a firm favourite in our DJ sets since we have had it cut; driving Ethio-funk with big vocals and drums.
Mahmoud Ahmed also appeared on Africa 45, number 4 with ‘Bemen Sebeb Letlash’.
‘Mètch Ené Terf Fèlèghu’ was originally released on Kaifa KF 002 A (7703) in 1973. Mid tempo, Ethio funk led by a low slung bass line and horns.
Both Seyoum Gèbrèyès and Wallias Band appeared previously on AFR45.014.
