Organist and keyboard player supreme Hailu Mergia could legitimately lay claim to the title Prince Funk of Ethiopia, should such a notion become reality. Swiftly following on from Lala Belu -- his first new LP in 15 years -- arrives this new 45rpm 7" on Awesome Tapes From Africa. The two tracks -- Yegojam Marnesh / Yegle Nash serve as a side dish to the main course of the album. Here, Mergia's trio explore their heavier side with sticksman Tony Buck and bassist Mike Majkowski excercising the full extent of their respective repertoires, licks and chops.
