Dawit Mellesse :: Anchin new (You're The One)
Dawit "Messay" Mellesse is an exceptional young singer who creates exciting, energy-filled music in his native tongue. He has traveled extensively, performing for diverse audiences throughout the world, and he entertains in numerous nightclubs in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa.
Dawit was discovered by Ethiopia's legendary Roha Band, and he has performed with the Ethio-Stars, Sevan, Abyssinian, Wallias, Hager Fikir and Express Bands. But it was Dawit's debut album, "Alchalkum", in 1991 which made him a favorite with Ethiopia's youth. Since then, he has recorded three albums, including 1995's Lottery (AIT Records) with the Admas Band. His current release earns Dawit a place among Ethiopia's greatest performers. "Anchin New" - You are the One - is a collaborative effort of Dawit and Ethiopia's renowned Admas Band and Express Band. AIT Records is pleased to bring you this high energy album.
