Album Notes
If there is a single artist who personifies the rich history of Ethiopian music, it must be Mahmoud Ahmed. These collections of his greatest hits (The Best of Mahmoud Ahmed, Tizita, Volume 1 & 2) include many of the songs that have made Mahmoud a legend on the world music scene. Mahmoud’s journey began in Addis Ababa in 1963, when he joined the Imperial Body Guard Band. In 1972, he released his first solo recording. Since then, he has come to define the Ethiopian sound. Demand for his music has brought him to North America, Europe, and Asia, where his name is synonymous with Ethiopian music. In more recent years, Mahmoud has worked on behalf of Nelson Mandela’s struggle for South African freedom and unity. Mahmoud Ahmed truly is the voice of Ethiopia – the only African country that was never colonized. Mahmoud is the winner of the BBC Radio 3 Awards for World Music in 2007.

If you like the Ethiopiques albums, maybe even from hearing the \"Broken Flowers\" soundtrack, then you need this CD in your collection. There is such talent on the African continent...this man is one part of the big composition that is \"African music\"
