Product Description

Mindanoo Mistiru means "What is the Unknown?" Ethiopia has many languages and styles of music. These recordings were made in the Empire of Ethiopia in 1971. The Ethiopian urban music was recorded in rooms in Addis Ababa.The instruments are: the masenko, a one-string fiddle; the craar, a gut strung lyre; the bagana, a large lyre; washint flutes; and kabaro drums. The vocal styles include a religious poem accompanied by the bagana and Amharic love poetry sung with craar playing by Mary Armeede. The Afar divination chant and flutes were recorded in the Danakil Desert. The Anuak thumb piano, Nuer harp song and dance drumming were recorded near the Sudan border,and the Konso dance was recorded near the Kenya border. Recorded by Ragnar Johnson and Ralph Harrisson.
