“Alemayehu Eshete (also written Alèmayèhu Eshèté in French) is an Ethiopian Ethio-jazz singer active since the 1960s who primarily sings in Amharic. Eshete's talent was recognized by colonel Rètta Dèmèqè who invited the young singer to perform with Addis Ababa's famous Police Orchestra. Eshete had his first hit ("Seul") in 1961 before moving on to found the orchestra Alèm-Girma Band with Girma Bèyènè. Over the course of 15 years, Eshete released some 30 singles until the arrival of the communist Derg junta, which forced Eshete and many other artists into exile.[1]”

“ There is no doubt that Tilahun is “a father of Ethiopian music”. But he was, even more than that, the mouthpiece of the last three Ethiopian generations too. His songs consider all human affairs and life in general. It is possible to say that almost nothing escapes from his songs. He sang about love, peace, friendship, justice, liberty, famine, war, etc. His songs have expressed the philosophies, thoughts, feelings and desires of the generations. They also deal with major episodes of the country’s contemporary history, like the 1960 coup, the 1973 famine, the 1974 Revolution and the like. Needless to say, Tilahun’s songs have paramount importance for our understanding of the contemporary history of Ethiopia. In short, he was more than a singer. Tilahun remains above graveyard as a witness monument of contemporary Ethiopian History.”

Indeed, you are lucky enough to have pictures with him. I did't have that chance at all. He was very sick and unable to preform by the time I was more interested in his songs.

You are very welcome to to share some of your favorite songs with other Ethiopians ( only Ethiopians) lol

Mahmoud Ahmed

BBC - Awards for World Music 2007 -

"Mahmoud Ahmed is both a living legend and something of a mystery in the West. Undeniably Ethiopia’s most famous singer of its “golden era”, the three albums reissued of his recordings by French label Buda Musique as part of their Ethiopiques series have captured Western listeners in the same way that, say, the reissues of Robert Johnson’s Delta blues did a previous generation. Yet where Johnson was long dead Ahmed is alive and in fine voice. Why then hasn’t he become a bigger star on the world music circuit? It appears Ahmed is so valued by Ethiopians – both at home and the Diaspora – he’s too busy singing for weddings and private events to give much thought to Western audiences."

I don't hate Muslims you idiot, I hate you and your little jihadist movement! I also despise wahhabi's,because they are intolerant and hatemongers who can't possibly live with Christians peacefully.

You little Christian terrorist pig. You hate ethiopian Muslims.In fact, no one equals your hatred. You celebrate their demise. Remember, You opposed fund-raising for the 8 mosques burned down in Ethiopia. And only because, I brought the news of burned mosques, ever since you describe me a jihadist. These are facts you can't deny, as you can't deny you're a dangerous chritian trrorist, to burn mosques and qurans and attempts at murders of Imams. You just said in another thread, Ethiopian christians can break the bones of Ethiop Muslims. How many matches did you send to Ethiopian clandestine violent Christian terrorists for burning mosqiues and qurans?
I am scared of you. Seriously.

You are a liar and you get paid for doing this I guess. I have never said we break Muslims bones, you are just reading to much in to my words and thought you got me..buahahah

I don't hate Muslims, but the new sect of Islam that has been instigating hate between peaceful Muslims and Christians.
