LO TIDE LISA G

Prince Pauper pays loving tribute to his friend, Ali Birra who passed on Nov. 6 2022. The most beloved of the Oromo singers of Ethiopia, he was a star for over fifty years, and wrote songs that are the classics of the Oromo people. Domino Sound, along with Little Axe, released a record of collected songs from the mid-1970’s of Ali’s music, and although it is out of print, a few of them can be listened to here.
