A selection of powerful pieces from the historical Amha Records catalog includes two pieces by a young Mulatu Astatqe, well known for his work on the Broken Flowers soundtrack. Also highlights two pieces by The Ashantis, a highly influential Kenyan band from the early '70s. Features artists previously showcased by the series (Ayalew Mesfin, Getatchew Kassa, Seyfou Yohannes) as well as new artists relatively unknown in the West (Menelik Wesnatchew, Seyoum Gebreyes, Tamrat Molla, Wubshèt Fisseha).
 "The exotic strains of Ethiopian jazz are not widely heard by American ears. But if you saw the Jim Jarmusch film Broken Flowers—and if you recall Bill Murray's road music—then you've heard the work of Mulatu Astatqe … [who can be heard on this] ambitious CD series on the French label Buda Musique." — NPR
