Mahmoud Ahmed provides a large lump of powerful vocals over the top of a vaguely urban jazz/Afro-beat backing texture. The intensity of the music is something to rival the Africa 70 or Egypt 80, with a pair of sax players dominating the proceedings. Ahmed's vocals, though, are the true star of the show, with the voice carrying over the top of all matters and providing an outlet for various love songs and melancholy pieces, with the spare festival song thrown in for good measure.

It’s the quaver that makes the Ethiopian singer Mahmoud Ahmed’s voice so arresting. He seizes on a note, brief or sustained, and makes its pitch tremble as if its urgency could barely be contained. It’s a show of controlled intensity, and in the course of a song, it happens again and again, making each phrase leap out anew: with sorrow, with anticipation, with a plea. That quaver is coupled with emphatic rhythm and grainy determination in a voice that Ethiopians in and out of the country have prized since the 1970s
