Tigrean People’s Liberation Front Tigray 90, Tigrean Revolutionary Songs no 27
This rare cassette from Tigray, Eritrea, which is part of a long series from the Tigrean People’s Liberation Front, was “found in Muna’s grandma’s closet.” I received it from Palm Wine, Italy, who asked that I note it’s origin. Although the sound quality is not great—even by this site’s meager standards—the tape is musically and historically fascinating so I thought I’d share.

I think you meant Tigray, Ethiopia not Eritrea.

This is music from northern Ethiopia not from Eritrea. The TPLF is the liberation front which is ruling Ethiopia since 1991. The Eritreans had a similar liberation movement the EPLF which also had a cultural troup like the TPLF.
TPLF is Ethiopian. Tigray is region in Ethiopia.
TPLF was an organization in Tigray, Ethiopia.
Eritrea had it’s own organization called EPLF.
Tigray/Ethiopia = TPLF (Tigray Peoples Liberation Front)
Eritrea = EPLF (Eritrea Peoples Liberation Front)
