Product Notes

The incomparable Muluken Mellesse was just 13 when he began singing professionally in 1966. He began his career with the Police band and went on to perform with a number of nightclub bands in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, including The Blue Nile Band, The Zula Band, The Venus Band, The Equators Band, The Dahlak Band, The Roha Band and The Ethio-Stars Band. In 1972, Muluken recorded his first song, Hedetch Alu, on Vinyl. In 1975, he released two of his signature recordings, Wetetë Marë, and Etë Endenesh Gedawo. Backed by the Dahlak, Roha, and Ethio-Stars bands, Muluken has since recorded many hit songs - Lëbo, Akal Gena, and Minew Kerefede, to name just a few. Over the years, many Ethiopian singers have imitated Muluken's singing style as a show of respect for this legendary performer. In the early 1980's, Muluken halted his music career and devoted his life to serving God. Although it's been over 20 years since he last performed, his songs still resonate in the hearts of millions of Ethiopian music lovers, and his fans cling to the hope that he will someday return to the world music scene.
