Ayalew Mesfin stands aside the likes of Mulatu Astatke, Mahmoud Ahmed, Hailu Mergia and Alemayehu Eshete as a legend of 1970s Ethiopia.

Ayalew’s music is some of the funkiest to arise from this unconquerable East African nation and, though he was forced underground by the Derg regime that took control of the country in 1974, he has returned almost 50 years later with this triumphant set of albums – the first time his music has been presented in this form.

“Che Belew” gives us the chance to discover a rare & beautiful moment in music history, in an anthology built from his uber-rare 7” single releases.

LP 2 of a 5 LP anthology.
