I love music.
It can move my soul like nothing else. Nothing
The first thing I do in the morning when I wake up is turn on my favorite music. Instantly, I feel a force navigate into my brain and trigger a giddy emotion.
I could be genetically sensitive to music but I am the only one.
Think of the best commercials or movies. Without the background music, it would be incomplete. Most religious sermons, national events or workout classes involve music.
I grew up in different parts of the world so I got exposed to all types of music.
But Ethiopia is home.
Today's post is about Ethiopian music. Musica.
Ethiopian music is as varied and spicy as the food. I like oldies when I am in the mood for pure poetry. There are also fast-paced dance music styles as well.
I selected one song for today.
In Amharic, an Ethiopian language, we add 'YE' at the end of a name as a term of endearment. For example - my name is Keni, my friends would call me KeniYe. For this song, the singer added the 'YE' next to Africa to express love.
Song title - AfricaYe
Singer - Teddy Afro
