Emahoy Tsegue Mariam Guebru - Emahoy Tsegue-Mariam Guebru
This album is the second LP in Mississippi Records’ ongoing series of releases from Emahoy Tsege Mariam Gebru, following Spielt Eigene Komposition, collecting her early solo piano works, recorded throughout the 1960s.
Emahoy Tsege Mariam Gebru is a true original - her compositions and unique playing style live somewhere between Erik Satie, Debussy, liturgical music of the Coptic Ethiopian Church, and Ethiopian traditional music. It is some of the most moving piano music you will ever hear!
These original compositions, performed by Emahoy Tsege Mariam Gebru herself on solo piano, were originally self-released in Germany in small editions as fundraisers for orphanages, support organisations for widows of war victims, and other philanthropic causes.
Released in collaboration with the Emahoy Tsege Mariam Music Publisher and Foundation to assist in continuing her life-long mission of using music as a vessel to care for those who have been abandoned by society, or harmed by strife. Each of these original compositions are made available for the first time on vinyl since the original early-1960’s editions, which are now completely impossible to find. A must have master piece for anyone who needs some spiritual comfort.
