Contemporary piano music from Ethiopian composer Girma Yifrashewa.  Anyone familiar with any of the history of twentieth century Ethiopian music, perhaps from listening to the Ethiopiques compilations, will hear the distinctly Ethiopian tonalities here, but within Yifrashewa's personal vision that brings in other kinds of classical music and jazz.  Mostly, it's just his own music, a unique statement of beauty and synthesis.  This is released on the great New York based label Unseen Worlds that puts out some albums that I might pass over as too saccharine or theatrical but actually leads to whole new areas of music for me.
