Release Notes
  • The first in a series of records Mississippi Records will be releasing with music culled from the monumental Ethiopiques CD series
  • Old school “tip on” cover

A most unusual & stunning album. Tsege Mariam Gebru is an Ethiopian nun who has dedicated her life to helping others. She has been composing & playing music on the piano since the 1960’s. Her music is a unique mix of Western classical music in the vein of Erik Satie, Ethiopian music & Religious Christian meditation music. On this reissue of her first LP, originally released in Germany in a very small pressing, we find Tsege Mariam Gebru playing her own compositions solo on piano. She plays with restrained grace & purity. The record invites repeated listening well and is filled with spiritual warmth. We are very proud to present this LP – the first in a series of records we will be releasing with music culled from the monumental Ethiopiques CD series. Old school “tip on” cover.
