Gigi* – Guramayle

I have been on the hunt for World Music recently having suffered something of a drought in recent weeks and months. So when a friend sent me this track, by Ethiopian singer Gigi (who I featured a couple of years ago in a slightly different guise), I was delighted.

It sounds fresh and pure like all the African music that I love and I have been listening to it on a loop for the past few days. It is taken her 2001 album of the same name and was subsequently featured on the soundtrack to God Grew Tired of Us, a 2006 documentary about the Lost Boys of Sudan.
