Thanks very much! Can’t say I’ve heard anything about this artist, either. And it’s puzzling to find that it’s labeled “volume 4,” too. You’d think sites that specialize in Ethiopian singers would at least have something by an artist who merits four releases.

Check his videos on YouTube using “Adam” since the name can be spelt both ways, “Adam Harun” or “Adem Harun.”

This cassette comes from the Oromia region; which sits near the Somali border on the east, and is predominantly Muslim.

Adam Haroun (also spelled as Harrun, Harun), is a very famous singer from that culturally-rich region. Most of his songs are nationalistic in their theme.

This cassette’s music dates back to at least, the late 70’s; it’s not an original cassette, though, yet the music is pretty much authentically old.

Nice drop.

This is a song from Adam Harun. A lot of his music has to do with Oromo nationalism. A lot of music in the Oromo language was suppressed for much of pre-1991 Ethiopia.

In Ethiopian empire at that let alone singing even speaking Afan Oromo is officially banned by feudalism regime. Adem Harun is one of the first to fight terany Using music. This extended descrimination is still their for the last 100 years. Adem harun is now live in exile b/c he is Oromo.His musics are give us determination for Oromo cause.

Can anyone can tell me anything about the guitar style being used on this tape and any other artists who feature this style? I am obsessed with this style and am trying to learn it.

Wow! What nice chance i get to find these musics! My Dad told me his experience with this album, which is called “Sossootee Makiinaan” literarly means ‘The Car has Started to Move’. He said i heard on radio that the album had released. He then went from Cheko, a rural area in west Hararghe to Hirna town which is 18 km far. He arrived there after travelling for 1:30 hours on foot. He bought a coppy of the album and came back to home. He put the cassete in to the tape player. when it started to play he realized that one side of the cassatte was empty, the five songs were not recorded. He turned back to Hirna town on the same day travelling on foot the similar distance to get the empty side of the cassatte be recorded.
So Adem Harun KabirHamid has this much love in our Oromo nation. Ling life to him!
