Album Review

Mohammed ‘Jimmy’ Mohammed – “Takkabel!” – [Terp Records]

aarbor   6/1/2022   CD, International

Jimmy Mohammed is blind. He’s from Ethiopia and loves to sing the songs of Tlahoun Gessesse, one of the most famous heroes of Ethiopian music. Gessesse’s songs were his “main source of inspiration and comfort” during a very difficult early life. In Ethiopia the words of the songs matter more than the music, the arrangement or the singer’s voice. Here Jimmy is accompanied by Mesele Asmamaw on the electric Krar, a 6 stringed lyre/harp, Asnake Gebreyes on drums and backing vocals, Hen Bennink on drums and Getachew Mekuria on saxophone. AArbor
