A most unusual & stunning album. TSEGE MARIAM GEBRU is an Ethiopian nun who has dedicated her life to helping others. She has been composing and playing music on the piano since the 1960s. Her music is a unique mix of Western classcial music in the vein of Erik Satie, Ethiopian music and Religious Christian meditation music. On this reissue of her first LP, originally released in Germany in a very small pressing, we find Tsege Mariam Gebru playing her own compositions solo on piano. She plays with restrained grace & purity. The record invites repeated listening well and is filled with spiritual warmth.
