v.a. - [2009] - Southern Ethiopia - music of the Maale [praises and blessings] [ethiopia]










Maale are one the 40 ethnic groups of southern Ethiopia. 

The Maale music is very rich. It encompasses a cappella polyphonic singing, vocal polyphonies accompanied on the lyre, whistled polyphonies, solo flute playing, flute orchestras, horns, drums, and it displays a great originality in the vocal and instrumental techniques. 

For the Maale, music is the mean of a constant exchange between generations. The youngest ('children') praises the eldest ('fathers') and the eldest bless the youngest. Thus the music appears as a strong factor of social cohesion.

Petites Planètes - Now Ethiopia • TILAHUN • lalibela songs from Addis Ababa [2012] [ethiopia] [FLAC]



originaly posted HERE :





          Lalibela, a small town in northern Ethiopia, home to 11 spectacular churches that were carved both inside and out from a single rock some 900 years ago. 

           Their building is attributed to King Lalibela who set out to construct in the 12th century a 'New Jerusalem', after Muslim conquests halted Christian pilgrimages, even today it is believed that Lalibela pilgrims share the same blessings as pilgrims to Jerusalem. 

      The Jerusalem theme is important. The rock churches, although connected to one another by maze-like tunnels, are physically separated by a small river which the Ethiopians named the Jordan.

Ethiopian jewish liturgy [1993, re-rel. 2003]

     
   R   E   U   P   L   O   A   D   


       Ethiopian Jews were an integral part of Ethiopia, and in most of their customs resembled their neighbors. 

       Their religious music, sung by the "Kess" (priests) was very similar to their neighbors', as well. However, the wonderful music on this CD was recorded in 1986 in Jerusalem, Israel. The performers were all Ethiopian Jews and the liturgies were all from the Ethiopian Jewish tradition. The music on this CD is very spiritual. It is fully within the Ethiopian musical tradition, and the vocals sometimes remind me of the sound of the masinko instrument (one string fiddle). 

       I heartily recommend it to anyone interested in Ethiopian Music.
