AllMusic Review by

Another outstanding regionally organized collection recorded by Jean Jenkins during the 1960s, drawn from three Tangent LPs covering the Central Highlands, the desert nomads and Eritrea respectively. In general terms, of course, it is somewhat similar to the Ocora set. In detail, the music is different, and arguably provides a better introduction if you're unfamiliar with Ethiopian traditional idioms.
