June 9 (CD). From beloved composer Emahoy Tsege Mariam Gebru, a revelatory new album of piano pieces, unreleased or virtually inaccessible until now.
Emahoy Tsege Mariam Gebru is a true original - an Ethiopian nun whose recordings have funded orphanages back home since the early 1960s. 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. This is the first archival release of the great composer's recordings since the "Éthiopiques" series reintroduced her music to the world in 2006. Drawn from original master tapes and a nearly impossible-to-find vinyl release, "Jerusalem" unveils profound new facets of Emahoy Gebru's performance and compositions. Newly remastered recordings pressed on 160g black vinyl, heavy jacket with reproduction of 1972 artwork, song notes by the artist.
