Gabriella Ghermandi – Ethiopia (ARC)

gabriella-ghermandi-ethiopiaThis Ethiopian vocalist & composer has created richly evocative Ethiopian fusion featuring many regional instruments in performances using traditional anchihoye, bati, & ambassel pentatonic scales; the latter often used in songs celebrating historical events as this CD does. The theme of the recording is a salute to the Victorian era Emperor Atse Tewodros II, who fought for Ethiopian independence from the British. The arrangements are contemporary, evocative, and most pleasing!
