Hailu Mergia & His Classical Instrument

Now on to it’s 6th release (ATFA006) Brian Shimkovitz ‘Awesome Tapes From Africa’ label has set quite the benchmark. Following on from such releases as ‘Na Hawa Doumbia‘ (ATFA001) and the ‘Dur Dur Band‘ LP (ATFA005), the next offering is due on 25th June. Taking the form of a reissue by ‘Hailu Mergia’, ‘Hailu Mergia & His Classical Instrument’ is preceded by album track ‘Shilela’ which you can download for free right now.

You might have read about this release already and will no doubt have heard at least some of it as a result, but that doesn’t mean you should let it pass you by. Ensuring the nature of the ‘Awesome Tapes’ is kept varied, this synth led jam is completely infectious and warrants immediate repeat listens. In what is most definitely a positive sign of things to come, all you have to do now is wait until the end of the month for the full LP.
