Ethiopian music

Postby momo » Sun Jun 23, 2013 9:21 pm

Alright, I Hello everyone in CyberEthiopia forums =D

I'm new and interested in Ethiopian music: new and old, any style, etc. Where should I start my musical journey - can you recommend me any music portals/mp3 sites, etc.?

I like jazz, world music, ethno, rock, classical, new age, instrumental, etc.

At the same time I'd like to invite you to an online song contest, where anyone who likes music can play :D

So would you like to share your love for Ethiopian music (or any other music for that matter) with the rest of the World through an online song contest (World Forum Song Contest), meaning each month you would suggest some song you like (and send mp3) and when all the songs are known (at the beginning of the month) you would download and listen to make a top ten and wait for the results at the end of the month.

This contest takes place each month for 10 years.

Anyway, here are the Ethiopian songs entered in previous 100+ editions of WFSC:

"Guramayle" by Gigi
"Gud Fella" by Gigi
"Y'shebellu" by Aster Aweke
"Esti Mela Belu" by Zeritu Kebede
"Dera" by Mahmoud Ahmed
"Fikiryishalegnal" by Aster Aweke
"Yeneh Ababa (Rose)" by Kenna
"B2H Ensaralen Remix" by Bole 2 Harlem
"Kulun mankwalesh" by Mahmoud Ahmed
"Ene Negn Wey Antchi" by Tlahoun Gessesse
"Belomy Benna" by Mahmoud Ahmed
"Aba Alem Lemenea" by Abyssinia Infinite

These songs were entered by non-Ethiopians who apparently like our music & associate them with Ethiopia.

What do you think about their song choices?? :)

So if you wanna know more about this game or even take part, check this out:

Thank you!! :)

Went to the site to see how foreigners sound singing ethiopian songs. Nothing on the page you provided.

Where can one check these contestants ?

Oh, this isn't karaoke contest! :) It's like you submit an mp3 of some song you like, so do other participants. Then we just listen to those original songs sung by original artists and make a top ten :)

Everything is written in tumblr, thanks for feedback.

I still hope people of this forum post some links where I can hear some good Ethiopian music, thank you!
