should be noted that "Buuraha U Dheer (The Highest Mountains)" was sampled in The Avalanches track "Interstellar Love". For those interested in collecting the original source material.

Absolutely staggering record, haven't stopped listening since I bought it. Ethiopia meets Bollywood. Enchanting music.

This is a total masterpiece, whoever saved the songs on here from being destroyed should get some sorta award or recognition. Absolutely love it, reminds me a lil bit of Ethiopian music but it sure has a identity of it's own. While every tune on here is awesome and breath taking I must say the female singers do a slightly better job than the male. If you even have a minor interest in African music this is a must.
