Emahoy Tsegue-Maryam Guebrou: The Song of the Sea


It’s not every day we feature a piano solo by an Ethiopian nun. From the album Ethiopiques 21, which I play a lot. Sort of Erik Satie meets Scott Joplin. If still alive, and I believe she is, she’s three years short of her 100th birthday. Wonder if she’ll get a telegram from Haile Selassie.
