Golden Years of Modern Ethiopian Music 1969-1975! The main body of Ethiopian records was produced in less than one decade: all in all, just under 500 45s and around 30 LPs. Amha Ashèté, creator of the Amha Records label, was the driving force behind this brief creative burst and one of the main founders of the modernist movement which swept the Erhiopian scene during the end of the rule of the emperor Haile Sellassie. In six years, Amha issued around 250 titles and, from his first recordings, Amha Eshèté displayed unerring taste in choosing the best independent or otherwise unattached musicians.
