And more music

Ever heard of Dub Clossus? It is a mix of great musicians. You have Tsedenya, known mostly as a pop artist but plays jazz quiet comfortably too. Samuel Yirga, a fine pianist. I wish there were more like him – who take old Ethiopian songs and jazz it up. Sintayehu does Azmari songs. I like her songs but after meeting her in person I liked her more. There is Gash Feleke Hailu a well known sax player (to say the least). I think I first saw him in person when I went to Yared Music School to take my probably first ever music lessons (come to think of it I am worse than I was back then). There is of course Nick, who got them all together. Yetebareke. He commands the base guitar well. Here is one song from their first album, A Town Called Addis. As I always say, you need good speakers to appreciate the music. Laptop speakers and other crappy speakers have poor response to bass. And dub music is nothing without bass.

I saw Mesfin Abebe on a video of one of his recent songs. After all these years he doesn’t look as aged as you might expect. Well done man! Students, see what music does to you?
