Ayalew Mesfin - Tewedije Limut (Let Me Die Loved)
Ayalew Mesfin stands aside the likes of Mulatu Astake, Mahmoud Ahmed, Hailu Mergia and Alemayehu Eshete as a legend of 1970s Ethiopia. Mesfin’s music is some of the funkiest to arise from this unconquerable East African nation. Tewedije Limut gives us a chance to discover a rare & beautiful moment in music history, in an anthology built from previously unreleased songs re-discovered on master tapes.
The album contains an oversized 11” x 11” 16 page book that tells the story of modern Ethiopian music and Ayalew’s role within it.
