Hailu Mergia – Shemonmuanaye

“The sound of Ethiopian jazz and folk is the sound of Hailu Mergia. Mergia offers a direct passage to traditional Ethiopian music with his accordion on this track from his legendary 1985 album “Hailu Mergia and His Classical Instruments” (reissued in 2013 by Awesome Tapes From Africa). In this session he is supported by the two Australian improjazz musicians Tony Buck (The Necks) and Mike Majkowski.Unseen Recordings
