Aron Kiebreab – Vol. 3

This is a tape of Eritrean music my friend Shawn found in LA. I have not heard anything like this before. This guy jamming on the great grandfather of the banjo with an amazing incessant heavy thud rocking all sounds forward splat. Sublime and heartfelt singing. Cheap-sounding minimal keyboard accompaniment. I think I’m in love.

As always, language guidance on the album/song titles/topics would be most appreciated.

Cheap-sounding minimal keyboards indeed! But his singing more than makes up for it – it’s straight from the heart.

Eritrean music is pretty much the greatest thing on earth…aside from dosas, which are my personal favorite thing.
