about

YELBEN (from my heart in Amharic) is the new single from the Hoodna Orchestra and Tesfaye Negatu. It is a love song that reflects a painful longing for a love that is long gone.
The song was written by the Ethiopian poet and singer Demisu Belete and composed by Ilan Smilan.

The B-side is the instrumental song BEZA ("on my side" in the ge'ez language).
Both songs were recorded live in the Hoodna studio, on mostly analog equipment. The songs convey a respectful nod to the glory days of Ethiopian jazz and pop in Adis Abbeba during the 60's and 70's. The new single will release under the “Hoodna Mucic” label on a 7” vinyl and is the first in a series of collaborations between the Hoodna Orchestra and Ethiopian singers and musicians both from Israel and Ethiopia.
