Ali Mohammed Birra (born 1950), an Oromo nationalist, is probably the most renowned Oromo singer of all times. Mentioning his name people often reply ooouu, yes he is good. Being one of very few Oromos he managed to reach the highland scene of Addis Abeba. He released two albums and made many guest performances before Emperor Haile Selassie’s fall. Completly different from any other artists sound, he had a strong integrity, and was variable in styles. Read more about him on wiki.
This tune is different from the rest of the songs on this album, I immediately imagined an Asian soundtrack song, hearing it, it was still an Oromo love-song.
