Ethiopiques, Vol. 11: Alemu Aga. 2002. Alèmu Aga. Harp of King David. This is another great entry in the Ethiopiques series. Subtitled "The Harp of King David," Alèmu Aga sings accompanied only by his harp, which is really closer to a kora than what Westerners might consider to be a harp. The Harp of King David" has a darker, more buzzing sound compared to a kora, and it suits Aga's rich voice beautifully. This is a lovely, intimate recording that stands apart from others in the Ethiopiques series in its general tone and stripped-down elegance, as opposed to the swinging cosmopolitan sounds of many of the others in the series.
