Mahmoud Ahmed: Almaz [Jan. 15th, 2002|11:26 am]
collating bones
The "Ethiopian Elvis"'s first album, reissued as part of the Ethiopiques series, and the unbelievably primitive production makes it kind of hard to get to, given that the band's trying to play the sort of hard Brownian pentatonic funk that's normally associated with dry crystalline sonics. But the singing, oh oh that singing--a crowdpleasing performer who probably thought he'd have little chance at ever seeing the inside of a studio, and doesn't know if he ever will again.
