Alemayehu Eshete is one of the greatest voices of Addis’ swinging sixties, and one of the funkiest, sometimes drawing comparisons with James Brown. But he’s no mere rip-off: this Heavenly Sweetness release shows just how effective he and his band were at combining Ethiopian sounds with Western soul and funk, bringing together Eshete’s powerful vocals and his band’s bristling guitar licks, tight jazz drumming, funky organ, and fiery horns to create an explosive sound that set Addis’ dancefloors alight.
