Mulatu Astatke – Tezeta

Cats who know what ‘Tezeta’ represents understand.

“Again and again, however we know the landscape of love,
and the little churchyard there, with its sorrowing names,
and the frighteningly silent abyss into which the others,
fall: again and again the two of us walk out together,
under the ancient trees, lie down again and again,
among the flowers, face to face with the sky.”

  1. So many layers to this piece, I hear something different on each listen, maybe dependent on my mood. Mainly a calming effect though. Thanks for this.


    1. Yes Ian .. me too and I must have listened to it at least 100 times over the years. …. my pleasure. ‘Tezeta’ is Ethiopian ‘blues’
