Audio 23 Feb 1 note

Teferra Kassa was amongst the first singers who performed with The Imperial Bodyguard Band. His voice might not have had the same charisma and strength, placing him somehow in the shadow of Telahun Gessesse and Mahmoud Ahmed he was never able to reach a similar fame and recognition. He also performed at the Theater like the above mentioned. He continued singing and had in some ways a more popular phase of his carrier into the 80s. Some Youtube clips: 1 2

This tune is taken from a cassette collection of Teferra Kassa with no info as usual, the backing sounding very much like The Imperial Bodyguard Band. Chellema Tegeffa (The dark was kept away). Enjoy
