How do you expect me to participate? I think Tigrinya should be banned from this site.
I’m petitioning the jebena editor:)
Dr.Abiy is working copy of “soft power” principle make sure you google it..
It can be contrasted with ‘hard power’, which is the use of coercion and payment. Soft power can be wielded not just by states but also by all actors in international politics, such as NGOs or international institutions. It is also considered the “second face of power” that indirectly allows you to obtain the outcomes you want. A country’s soft power, according to Nye, rests on three resources: “its culture (in places where it is attractive to others), its political values (when it lives up to them at home and abroad), and its foreign policies (when others see them as legitimate and having moral authority).”
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I found the interview from face book and I dig it.
.”እንኳንስ ዶክትሬት ዲግሪ ለመድረስ Bachelor Degrees ለመሥራት የእንግሊዝኛ ብቃትና የራስ እውቀትና ሐሳብ ግድ ነው። ኢትዮጵያ የተቀበለችው አለምአቀፍ መግባቢያ ቋንቋ እንግሊዝኛ ነውና። አቢይ አህመድ ለቃለ ምልልሱ የአሜሪካን ባለሥልጣን የሄንሪ ኪሲንጀርንና የብሪታኒያውን የሩሰል ብራንድን ቃለ ምልልስ ከመፅሔት ሸምድዶ ነው የሚያውራው ሁሉ ከሰው የተወሰደነ እንደሆነ በዚህ ማስረጃ ተረጋግጧል። Thank you very much የሚለው ቃል ብቻ የራሱ ነች ::”
And I am really concerned to know more about this seemingly advanced Ethiopian PM..I will attach the interview very soon.
“The current global re-balancing must be read as an urgent call to action for leaders, diplomats, and foreign policy makers. Without question, those charged with shaping their nation’s foreign policy need to be ready for the uncertain times ahead.”
wish the best…

Ramadan Kerim for every one of you ..
No matter what worries or challenges you are faced with, allow God provision of peace to flow in and through you. God came to bring you peace. Do not let your heart be troubled. Do not be afraid. Open your heart and receive a fresh dose of perfect peace from God.
May I encourage all of you to turn your fears into faith, your cares into prayers. With every rejection, God will give you new direction. With every distress, God will give you success. With every breakdown, God will show you breakthrough.
Instead of focusing on lack, or what you have missed, start to focus on God’s provision for you and what God has blessed you with. Fix your eyes on God’s abundance. Because God loves you, trust that HIS unlimited resources are at your disposal.
Embrace your day — this day– it is a gift. Focus on God’s love for you.
Remember, God’s grace will be sufficient for any need you have.
May God’s provision of favour, strength, wisdom and blessings be upon you today and beyond. Amen…
With love and prayers,
Today in FB..Dr.Beyan Negash attached the heart feeling song of Fitsum..
“Fistum Beraki caught the bug of nostalgic mood like his predecessors who sang about life in exile like Yemane (“Baria”) and Abraham Afewerki. This song touches that core within oneself when one misses one’s formative years, kweggih’yu ajokha Fistum. Meanwhile, keep on touching our heart with your artistic talents.”

Dear Hailat and Amani.
Here is what we talk about.
ሕማም “ምርሳዕ” for some it starts as early as 40s, but mostly it happened in the geriatric age. Depressed people are prone to this disease in their late ages. The disease is characterized by loss of neurons and synapses in the cerebral cortex of the brain.
ይሁኔ በላይ አዲስ ነጠላ ዜማ
Wow… quite interesting. I am constantly surprised by the young generation.
There are a lot of young once who are ready to build the nation..called Ethiopia ..
ሕማም “ምርሳዕ” for some it start them as early as 40s. It’s onset is mostly in the 60s. It is considered as geriatric disease. Depressed people are prone to this disease in their late ages. The disease is characterized by loss of neurons and synapses in the cerebral cortex of the brain.
Do you agree with bellow Idea..
No need of revenge..Karma is the way out to that…Just wait and see those hurt you will pay for it..Just sit and wait those who hurt you will eventually pay equal price. And the 2nd exam you is for your chance to cover them..
መሪር የሀዘን ዜና፦
ኑሮቸውን በአሜሪካ የነበሩ የጣና ባለውለታ ባህር ዳር ላይ ባሳደጉት ሰው ተገደሉ፦
አቶ ግርማ ዘለቀ ነዋሪነታቸው በአሜሪካ ሲሆን ጣና ታመመ ሲባል ቀድመው ምላሽ በመስጠት ወደ ባህር ዳር ተጉዘዋል።
ዛሬ የሰማነው ዜና ደግሞ እጅግ መሪር ነው።
በባህር ዳር ቀበሌ 04 የተወለዱት እና ከማን በፊት ስለ ጣና ጉዳት ያወቁት አቶ ግርማ በጩቤ ተወግተው ተገድለዋል።
አስከሬናቸውም ገብርኤል ቤተክርስትያን መሆኑን ሰምተናል።
የጣና ጉዳይ ከማንም በፊት ወስደው ትልቅ ተነሳሽነትን ያሳዩ ስራውንም ለመስራት ብዙ የደከሙ ዛሬ ብዙዎቻችን ስለ ጣና ግንዛቤው እንዲኖረን ከ4 ዓመታት በላይ ከአሜሪካ በመላለስ የደከሙበትን አቶ ግርማን ማጣት ትልቅ ሀዘን ነው።
በጣና በኩል የሁላችን ወዳጅ አቶ ግርማን የተሰማንን ሀዘን እንገልጻለን
በወቅቱ ሀዘኑን ያልገለጽነው እዚህ ምንኖርበት ቤተሰቦቻቸው ስላልተረዱ በሚል ነው Annapolis Maryland. በአካል የጣናን ችግር የሚቀርፍ ከ1 ዓመት በፊት ወስደው ያሳዩኝ ማሽን በወቅቱ ፍላጎታቸው ይሄን ማሳካት ነበር።
ወንጀሉን የፈጸመው ያሳጉት የእህታቸው ልጅ ለመያዝ ከህግ አካላት ጋር ይተባበር ከተማችን እንዲህ ዓይነት ወንጀል መፈጸሚያ አትሆንም::

It is better to wait for an official announcement from the government and we shouldn’t pay too much attention to what is going on in Ethiopia for it is strictly their business.
I think you are Right..better wait till official announcement..
“we shouldn’t pay too much attention to what is going on in Ethiopia for it is strictly their business.” I know that Paulos..but don’t forget I am also an Ethiopian, Eritrean….
So is Isaias Afwerki 😂.
Is that? Lol…Ha ha ha
What about now?
This poem is just to encourage our youth.

I heard just now that our father Haj.Mussa M.Nur has passed away just today morning. And today after Selatel Asri his final will be performed according to call I got from Asmara.
May his soul rest in peace..Amen. RIP our hero ..
If confirmed, this is a sad day for Eritrea and us eritreans all.
A sad day for the aKryia community and al-Diaa school students and alumni.
A sad day for his family.
A bad day for justice for those imprisoning it.
This man departed standing tall.
This man gave a lesson with his life.
He is the path to justice and will never be forgotten.
Dear Haile S,,
Abdulkader has already mentioned this great father..
“Hats off! Hajji Mussa, no worries no trepidation
You’ve set the pace you have defined the direction
Your own people shall accomplish the mission
Your own people will soon reach the destination
No worries, all is set the revolution is in full motion
The seeds you planted will in no time grow to fruition
The souls you stirred will never succumb to delusion
Now that you have cleared the path and restored our vision”
RIP Hajj Mussa..
Horrible news and bad ending, it is sad that Eritreans are losing people with big hearts and fathers while lunatics are tearing the country from inside and outside. My condolences to us all Eritreans and to his family .
That is how the journey toward peace and freedom.
And now, you will see how the things go and how the dictator ends… that is experience is all over the world.
The fall of PFDJ is certain and there is not a single debut about that in my mind. What worries me all the time is sir , we are not ready to fill the vacuum. Eritrean opposition forces If we have are not ready to play the belt boys game and if that didn’t worry you , well I see the difference between many good wishers and the reality. I am worried that we are not mature enough to solve our differences on the table, that’s way we have to hammer the opposition leadership . We need to push them that Eritreans are not going to accept squabbling.
Is pia get sick chronically? I mean how is that the fall of pfdj is certain? Is the rebels pushing to asmara? Or is the uprising intensified? In short what is going on any news?
No , there’s no one that push to Asmara from any direction but the man is becoming old and his natural will fall as anyone. I don’t believe there is any opposition that can remove him. Who are going to remove him by force? I don’t believe there is . I mean the 5 kunama and the 3 so called afar are no match to PFDJ force. There is zero possibility that the man can be removed by outside forces. He is well guarded from outside and inside.
Get it now. In other words the only option is praying to God to make his life short.
I don’t believe there is god looking at our misery , he never existed . Waiting or something Issaias rule will end but not 20 years from now , I think it is much shorter . Come on ,how is that you wanted weyane to die soon but Issaias much longer? Have heart to Eritreans, after all if both gangs get lost we have chance to create good things
I was translating what u said in different words, i have heart to eritreans , u do the same thing.
If i lie my citizenship i can be eritrean in this forum. U know that.

Dear Brother Horizon,
Thank you for up-voting,,,
Well, I think we should give the singers a slack (Sal do not be shocked this coming from isem:-))
But even shakespeare in Sonnet 130 wrote mockingly wrote sonnet 130 when the elizabeteahn poets hyperbolically. described their loves looks and their feeling. Shakespear wrote the following.
My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.
And since today is Sunday here is a quiz for awatitsta: Which notable awatista once wrote the following naster piece lover letter:-)
Hint: I found this letter by accident when I was in high school by sheer chance when the wild win brought to me under the tree I was sitting at and I was in search of its author and I found him in awate a few years ago. recognized him by this writing style:-)

This guy knows how to assemble words of praise. Very impressive. The take home of words for me from his artistic language are : “ፓሎቲካዊ ብስለትክን ተወፋይነትክን ተወሃሂደን ሓርበኛን ፈቃርን፡ ክለት ተጻረርቲ አምራት ኣብ ሓቲ ሂወት ትሶኺዕን ንሃመይን ቀልበይን ደስታን ይህባ፡ ንምተክለይን ጽንዓተይን የህጥራ::”
Is he really awatistas? I can’t pinpoint him.
This is iSem when he feigned Harbegna tegadalay in his quest to win his girl friend who had dumped him to join ghedli. iSem was on semi-official tour but expanded that opportunity to shower his ex-girl friend with Shakespearian-Ghedlian poetry to no avail. Yep, iSem’s poetry is there for everyone to see.
Hi MS and Emma:
You both disappoint me.
First Emma, this is a joke, no one write this:-)
MS: Nop. Now that I told u it ia joke,now second chance
My only hope is Sal now or Salehe Gadi
Who said those lines and why (min alqaeel wo man almunaseba)
Sal,do not disappoint me
A glimpse to the north-west and east. I couldn’t find ያዓላማ ሆሮማ(ባ)ሌ, the Assawrta or Afar song I new since childhood. Sorry if I am mixing up, it is due to my lack of knowledge in these cultures an language. Lucky are those who speak more than one Eritrean language!
(Let’s make resolution Awatista: stop politics at least for this weekend and talk about music and art)
ዘመን ዘይቡሕጉጎ ደርፊ
All generations have their own interesting qualities and contributions to the society, however, the passing generation admires mostly its own, for so many reasons. Some times it is reasonable some times it is not.
ናይ ሎሚ ጸሓይ ከኣ ጸሓይ ተባሂሉለይ: ጸሓይ ቀደም ነይራ falls into the latter category, whilst the nostalgia that I will try to elaborate, I believe, falls into the reasonable admiration of the quality of the past productions and probes the quality of the current artistic products.
My topic is song. Yes! ደርፊ ቀደም ነይሩ! Why?
I do appreciate that the reason that the main reason that we love to think our generations’ songs are better than the current one is because the 60s and 70s song has the power to trigger shining memories that seem to carrying us back in time and space and not necessarily the songs are better written, composed or arranged.
If someone’s first gift that was accompanied by the first kiss to his girlfriend was Nwaye Debebes የጥቅምት ኣበባ and the date went well, then it is more likely to hear him saying ደርፊስ ኣምሓርኛ ኢዩ፡ ፍቕሪ ንሶም ጥራይ ኢዮም ዝገልጽዎ። Because as scientist say ‘the songs we love become woven into a neural tapestry entwined with the people, seasons, and locations throughout our lifespan.
My knowledge is near zero when it comes to lyrics and music combination, arrangement, etc. Nevertheless, I believe I am a dedicated listener. From the music we listen these days, and indeed the last 20 years, one can easily differentiate the quality of the 60 – 70’s songs and their lyrics.
One of the reasons that I believe that made the old songs live through our life time as the best songs is the well written lyrics of the song. Read and listen to Osman Abdurahim’s song ትነብር ነይራ ቆጸራ ጠሊማ። Yes!the music is melodious, alluring, and delightful and Osman’s soul searching vocal in the tune is captivating, charming and spellbinding; but I believe what makes it splendid is the narrative style of its lyrics. Like a great book it has a story, in fact a story that sounds true story with an arc—a beginning, middle and end— the main character being Osman himself.
He establishes the tone and scenario by telling us that he set a date and rendezvous with his fiancé but to his despair she did not show up and was trying to find her since.
መዓልቲ ፈሊና ቆጸራ ጌርና ኣፋንየያ ግዝያቱ ምስኣኸለ ደልየ ቀቢጸያ። ነዊህ እዋን ኮይነ ጨሪሰ ምስተሓለልኩ ናብ ሲነማ ኣተኹ ሃንደበት ከይመደብኩ።
So as in drama, with this few words, he set the scenery of lost love; with those two stanzas Osman was able to produce a conceptual scenery that equip us in understanding his narration. The fact we know that ናብ ሲነማ ኣተኹ ሃንደበት ከይመደብኩ will support us to understand the content and values which will follow in that dark cinema – where poor Osman was sitting alone unlike his ቀዳሞት ናይ ፍቕሪ ቖጸራታቱ።
Then accompanied by the ambiance of high and low strings of guitar and (if I am not mistaken) the Ride cymbal which seems was softly played not to let Osmans vocal remain lonely, takes you to the main menu of the song.
The kind of squeal in the intro and the transformation to the beat shows the power of the harmony and combination of strings and sax. It sounds as if it is a replica of the magnificent Bruce Springsteen’s track when he was featuring Clarence Clemens “Jungleland” silent screaming withered. I remember some one saying ‘if you like an instrument that sings, play the saxophone. At its best it’s like the human voice’. I guess partially it is true.
Following the intro, Osmans starts to sing. One can easily witness his skills and qualities in his vocal range, vocal weight, vocal tessitura, vocal timbre, and vocal transition. Osman is capable of creating vocal points where he can break and lift them within his voice as he would like them to be.
Then Osman narrates the story of what happened inside that Cinema. His words are descriptive like a page turner suspension book.
እዋኑ ቁሪ ኢዩ ግዜ ቀውዒ ኣስሓይታ: ሰማይ ተሸፊኑ ብግመ ምስዛዕዛዕታ it is words yet Osman is capable ‘to showing us not telling us’ the environment. He is not saying simply ምሸት ነይሩ because people would say of course ምሸት ነይሩ you told us already you are in Cinema. So Osman did not use cheap ways of telling instead he tried to show the kind of the ምሸት ግዜ ቀውዒ ኣስሓይታ።
In a narrative lyrics you are expected to make sure that any new stanza reveals something new, no matter how slight it is. So Osman took us with him to the rainy night.
ምስ ደኸመኒ ዙረት ናብ ዝኾነ ቦታ፤ ነጎዳ ኖጊዱ ናይ ዝናብ ምልክታ። ሲነማ ኣተኹ ኪኾነኩም ንዛንታ፤ ዕርፊ ኮይኑ እውን ምስ ሰደድኩ ቆላሕታ.
Again as a gifted writer he is convincing us to side with him as a victim of some one’s betrayal, wet by the rain, abandoned and emotional who is looking everywhere in the middle of the movies – ‘Prima Tempo’ as we use to call them when we were young.
In the meantime, compare Osman’s lyrics with today’s songs which try to talk about love, exodus, religion, the war in Tserona, best night at Mockambo with his girl friend, Wg’e hadhd zagir, 2% Holland, the importance of implementation of EEBC, Weyane, First kiss, Mt’yas in just one lyrics. Or compare Osman’s realistic lyrics with someone who sings ብድኽነተይ ዲኺ ፍቕሪ ከሊእክኒ in a clip that shows him driving Mercedes.
Now without stating much and diluting the beauty of the music with my TELMEDEN review, let me share the song and its polyrhythmic and polymetric contents, and its power of the complimentary melodic phrases, which Osman opted to have different starting and ending points.
“We get nearer to the Lord through music than perhaps through any other thing except prayer። I agree!
Would love to hear your input – enjoy!
What a insensitive, post !! You are an artist of our times,,
Thanks for sharing, ‘Remember you adjust to a higher vibration and you will eventually fully adjusted. The new will soon arrive and make you feel so much better፥I really like it, ኣፍካ ይስዓር፡ ሓሳብ ልብኻ የስመረልካ
Merhaba Kokhobay & Kibrom,
For those who are in search of peace and unity in Eritrea, I will endorse and remind you with this: “In the free state of spiritual brotherhood, all differences will dissolve; all barriers will fall, and all passions which
divides people will be changed and transfigured into the blessed of peace and unity” [ Guru Nanak].
A great idea and wonderful review. I am not much into music but I do particularly like Osman. I understood this particular song and the story it tells fascinated me.
You took me back way in time and reminded when my dad bought tape player in the eighties. He also bought two cassette which were popular at the time, kuku Sebsebie and another guy I forgot his name.
We were all exited and listed to the songs again and again. My mother wanted Osman and nothing else. So my dad goes to the store and asks and he was told that’s old but they will have it for him the next day.
So he got us the cassette and it played in our house everyday. I think it must be the one that was recodrded live. I am saay would be able to find it.
One other song that I remember was “ab ketma MswaE”. I was never to Massawa and through the song I had the clear picture what Massawa would be.
For most of the songs that I heard in 80s remind me home, specially every Saturday Hibret TirEit. Mostly Roha band songs and specially Tekle Tesfazghi Which one of them is Fikrey Telemeni.
Berhe & Kbrom:
Well, eventually, I was going to disagree with Kbrom about something–I just didn’t think it was going to be about music. But we will come to that in a bit:)
Berhe, I only know two songs that were recorded live of Osman, one was in the early Ma.t.A. days (in Tigrinya) and one was from the exile years (in Arabic.) Assuming it is the former, could it be this song: ጀለምታ ንብዓተይ? It is so fast I get tired hearing it:
Speaking of moms, in the mid 1970s, he came up with a monster of a song, I mean it was huge (yuuuuge) and everywhere and it was called “ኣደየ”

What made the song different was it was his first gwalya song since ደቂሰ ኔረ (later covered by Tsehaitu Berakhi) –otherwise his songs had been “nightclub music”. There were two reactions to the song (and I will leave it to your imagination and your knowledge of your patriarchal society to determine who was saying them):
1.እዋይ! ኣደይ መዓረይ ናፊቐ! (I miss mom) This was followed by the untype-able noise women make: they part their lips and as they do they make a chewing sound. Mts mts
2.ሰበይታይ! ኣደይ? ደርፊ ስኢኑ ድዩ? (Sissy! “Mom?” What, he ran out of songs?)
At the biographical level, the story was that Osman’s dad (Aboy Adurehim) was devastated that his son was a ሓሜን and it was mom who sustained him.
Now, Krbom. I have given my permission to Tes Meharenna (publisher of Asmarino.com) to release audio reviews I have of Eritrean songs, but only when I am dead and buried. And the one I have the most fun with is the song you picked, Osman Abderehim’s ትነብር ኔራ:: It is narration, alright, but It is a Stalker’s narration: the last line is ደዲሕራ ስዓብኩ ክስልያ ምእንቲ (I followed her to spy on her.) And this is after she came out of the movies. In the cold of winter and fog. It is what makes women terrified to walk at night, #MeToo are not happy with the song. It is what a criminal would say testifying on what happened.
By the way, Osman has, of late, been licensing his songs to a newer generation. Here’s one doing his best (“bless his heart”, as Southerners say) and my favorite part of the song are in the credits where he writes that Osman has given him permission to sing 3 songs. My favorite because I can actually imagine exactly how the conversation went:)
Thank you saay. You always have treasure of knowledge to share. I was probably wrong on the live recorded but I guess I wanted to say was the older original version unless this is the only version,
Yes, I see the last line is ደዲሕሪኣ ስዓብኩ: ክስልያ ምእንቲ and that is the beauty of the song. Some song writers have their preferences for particular structures, one of them is to let the audience in suspension and let them do the remaining part of your story as he/she wishes to see them conclude. ድሕሪኡስ ረኺብዋ ዶ ይኸውን፥ ደድሕሪኣ ሰሊሉ ገዘኣ ፈሊጥዎ ኣሎ ካልኣይ ግዜ ኳሕኪሕዋ ዶ ይኸውን፥ that is the beauty of it. In Water Colour arts, there is the same trend, to paint your art work and not to finish it so that people could make their own making.
Listen to ቀያሕ ኢያ ነይራ ቀያሕ ጓል ኣኽርያ boring, monotonous, list of all Asmera’s zip codes, ሓዝሓዝ ከይደ ስኢነያ፥ ገጀረት ከይደ ስኢነያ፥ ኣኽርያ ከይደ ስኢነያ፡ ቀሓውታ ከይደ ስኢነያ nothing “hooky”, it is a kind of lyrics which song critics would likely tell you “Don’t bore us with your meaningless lyrics, just play the chorus”!
If Osman was to follow the ቀያሕ ኢያ ነይራ ቀያሕ ጓል ኣኽርያ style and tried tell us… then he went the second day, …… she did not open the door, ……he tried to send his best friend to convince her, ……then he came to know that she started dating another person…etc.. the more he tells us the more the beauty fades out. Re: Art is the elimination of the unnecessary. (Pablo Picasso)
I think it was Robert Baggio (yes he was also a critic) who said we do not necessarily understand what the artist intended to say but we can “enjoy” and “appreciate” the art.
Here we go with ቀያሕ ኢያ ነይራ ቀያሕ ጓል ኣኽርያ
Boredom Waning: please buy energiser drinks before playing this song and plan to have you shower after listening the song.
I see you are not a big fan of Geography Songs😂 iSem loves them, don’t you know. But you can’t blame the new generation for starting it: they are just continuing a tradition that was started in the 1960s by artists rhyming ኣስመራ with ብሓበራ or መንደፈራ, or 70s music of ውላድ ሕርጊጎ ወ ዕዳጋ (Alamin in “Selam”)) or Ghedli romanticism like ነፋሲት ጌሩ: ናብ ጎልጎል ዓላ (Fihira in Arki Hlfot) or Saeed Abdella’s ኣስቲኒ ማይ____ (fill in the name of any Eritrean river in “Asteeni my xemaeko” )… it is tradition now. It just went from macro to micro in Asmara, likely to increase to accomodate nostalgic exiles.
No energizer drinks necessary for the song you attached: Hagos Berhane plays guitar! Plus, he gets extra credit for now having badly choreographed dancers somewhere in the hills or meadows, no?
Ha! I see, saay,
Speaking of ኣደየ ወላዲተይ this is what I have heard from the horses mouse,
As part of his effort to convince Osman to quit singing , at one point Osman’s dad Hajji Abderhim bought him a new brand FIAT 125 and told him if you quit singing Osman wedey the shop (እንዳ እኽሊ) and this car will be yours. To respect his dad’s words, Osman stopped working in nightclubs to work in his dad’s (እንዳ እኽሊ) nevertheless, continued to write and compose his songs hiding from his dad.
It was at that time that he released his ኣደየ ወላዲተይ single album that was composed by Fikre Atleticato. When the song was broadcasted in Radio Asmera Hajji Abderhim knew that his son did not respect his promise and declared him as persona non grata. His mom also told him ኣነ ምስ ኣቦኻ ተዓረቕ ኢየ ኢለካ እምበር ድረፈለይ ዶ ኢለካ ኢየ to which Osman replied ኪዲ ንስኺ ጥራይ ኣይኮንክን ኣደ ንኩለን ኣዴታት ኡየ ደሪፈያ። But it was specifically written for her according to him.
Now to the licensing to the newer generation part. You see if one is going to remix he has to put the bars either to improve or at least to keep the status-qou of the song. They have to do their homework and work hard. In the video you posted you see three major mistakes in the first 30 seconds, one he is saying ዝሑል ኢዩ ማዓንጣይ it is ዝሕው ኢሉ (kinda of Butterflies in your stomach) and then ካብ ፍቕርኺ ሕሰም ይኣክል which must be ዝኣክል ሰኪሐ። The third mistake is while they are acting in a scenario of 60’s and smart enough to remember the costume, they forgot that the ironing of that time was not and electric iron.
Please watch this video by Ethiopian Director in Jossy’s clip and the efforts they made to reflect the scene. Then you will see the big difference.
All good points. Well, nearly all… you are new to awate so, a reminder (re-posting)
Jossy? The guy is so obnoxious the estate of Abraham Afewerki had to say, “please stop”. Remember, he was going to go to Eritrea to hold a concert and some meanie Ethiopian website had a bunch of snarky comments about that, which I saved, and I would write my buddy Eyob Medhane with “guess what?” and he would think I had breaking news and every single time he would fall for it and every single time I would quote a line from the Ethiopian website about Jossy in Eritrea. Samples:
Hey Eyob, i got some news!
በል እግረ መንገድህን ለ ግንቦት ምነው ዘገያቹ በልልን!
Eyob? Where have you been? Did you hear?
ኣስታጥቆ ሳዋ ይልከዋል ከዛ ሳዋ ሳው ብሎ ይዘፍናል!
Hey Eyob, did you read the BBC report?
What? No, what does it say?

Then Eyob disappeared for months from me, until:
Hey Eyob, I got news about Ethiopia’s elections!

Ah saay Ok, my apologies, I did not know the rules of the ground; as many of my fellow Eritreans I started to post then I will read the guidelines; we sign a contract then we read it, that is what many of us do, do not we? But how would one know if a video was posted before. Moreover, I can see Awate Moderator beside your account, what does moderator mean, of course, I mean in this context.
It was a joke 🙂 These are the only posting guidelines that moderators enforce (when they have time). Otherwise, it is a self-moderating forum:
This song is weird in a sense that one is not sure if he is singing about godenatat & barat asmera or about a girl he felt in love. Or does he suffer from dementia that he forgot where he saw her, but then he talks about the “ቀያሕ ጋል ኣኽርያ”, so one would expect he ቀንፈዘው ክብል only in ጎደናታት ኣኽርያ. እንታይ ኣምጾ the whole ኮለል?
It is again as most of the tigrinya love songs about him…how much he walked ( እግረይ ነቒዑ ( it this romantic? ), how much he suffered ( like in some other songs) “ ብሰንክኺ ኣትዩኒ ሰሎሎ”, ” ማዳ ተኸዲኑ ገጸይ” , ” ትምህርቲ ኾይኑኒ ኣሎ”, “ኣላትኒ እንዳበልኩልኪ ክንደይ ብአኺ ተመኪሔ”. እዋይ ኣውያት እዋይ ብኽያት ! The part of how much he loved gets almost lost.
Yemane Barya is one of those rare artists who could sing real love songs ብዘይ ጸርፊ ብዘይክሲ
እንታይ ኣምጾኦ ኮለል ጥራይ ኢልኪ ዕንኪላሎ ኢዩ? ኤህ ኢለኪ ኣለኹ ማስጣይ ይወርድኪ ኢሎም እውን ይደርፉ ነታ ዘፍቅርዋ?I wish they can listen to Yemane’s

Kudos to the music composer the legend Abdullah Abubakar
Idris wedi Amir was another legend who sung I wish I were your bracelet so that I can always touch your skins.
In one of his love songs ( translation by Omer Kekia) he sings
(esK leKalQ red’ani)-Till the creator saves me
(mn emeyt abere)- And if I die I will only rest
(weQebryie setreni)- And my grave will veil me
(wemn hale Hlaya)- And if I live, I will sing for her
(wera’yta kefieni)- And seeing her will be all I ask for
(ana sabr hlieKo)- I am still patient
eglie wo’gla tenebr)- Not only for herself, but she also lives for me
(wa shamatna kefiena)- And our love is enough for us
(Haglan mnmeS’ wodbr)- Even if there comes poverty and want
(ana sabr hlieko)- I am waiting in patience
There was another traditional song written for your name which goes like this
ጽጌሬዳ ጓለቦይ ወረደ
ጾግሪ ርእሳ ፈረስ ምቐየደ
ደርጊ ስና ሰማይ ምጋረደ (whatever that means)
Your today’s suggestion was a stroke in the direction of the hair (caresse dans le sens du poil).
I tried to find a link for one of my favorite Eng Asghedom’s song (መፍትሕ ልበይ) without success. But I realize that you and Tzigereda are not fun of the blood engorged heart (ልበይ ደም ሰሪቡ). I wouldn’t even consider his other song (ጓል ኣቦይ ጊለ) even if I had found a link. ሕጂ ክብሮም ደራፊኡ ዘይተፈልጠን፡ ዘይተቐርጸን ካብኣምጻእካ፡ እንሃለት ኣብ እንዳ ስዋ ዝሰማዕኩዋ፥

It repeats several times by changing the tone.
Je vous remercie. Le but était d’avoir le feu de la guerre politique. The other day we were talking about the songs that disregard the 50% members of the society. Look at the wedding song when Mer’awti walk to the Das, ከዓ መጸ መጸ ኣንበሳ ይመስል ካብ ዱር ዝወጸ as if the bridegroom is not there. Then you have the ብድሕሪ ገደና ሕለፍ ከም ደበና ኣደይ ክርእያኻ ንጓለይ ክብላኻ even when she is in love with him she does not have a say until and unless the mother tells the father and the father agrees or rejected.

ማመት is a very interesting lady and a trove poet. By saying ዝሓዝክዮ ይግበረልኪ ከንቶ, she looks to have been an inveterate widow (በዓልቴት) from a village ቀላይ በዓልቴት. I learned a new tigrigna word from this song, ኣውለልቶ, which means rib-meat based on the tigrigna dictionary that is presently at auction for Awate fundraising. Great song!
Actually she was ጽናሕ እሞ እዞም እንግሊዝ ከይሰምዑና ብትግርኛ ክንቅይሮ እቲ ዘረባ፥ ዓጣሪት ኢያ ዝነበረት ። At one point she sang for herself

Let’s say she was a sort of courtisan, who poetically and intellectually entertained her village and the whole region. Like some of the European courtisans, she might have played regional politics. There are individuals who left big mark like ማመት። I remember my mom talking of ሹም-ፍረሓንስ though I cannot relate any of the stories I listened to. It is great you brought her to the forum and importantly great of you for being able to remember all details without dots. Do you know what kind of tree or shrub is ኣፍከሜ?
I have no idea what could be ኣፍከሜ.
It is great you raised another popular thinker ሹም ፍረሓንስ who is believed to be the most creative and shrewd personality for his sagacious decisions to solve complex cases. The following ” ውዕሎ ሹም ፍረሓንስ ” was written by Viviana Amanuel in 2012.

Inveterate you say? I see your Amet and raise you Amet squared. The inveterate gambler that I am. For some reason Michael Wong’s book title on Eritrea is conjured in my mind. And now Dustin Hofman in Wag The Dog.
Will this do for now? Be sure Tzigereda has her headphones 🙂 It probably has the two most disgusting combo of words in Tigrinya, but I think it is an expression of love.
You are encyclopedic! Nice version. Agree on the bad words.
Talking about Saay, either he has a photographic memory or he is so good in using modern technology. On the former he made to say what? last week, when he can’t remember his own article he posted it two months ago. I think he is good in long term memory than short term memory. Keep in mind short term memory is the time period we retain the information before either discarding it or transferring it to long term memory,
On the latter relating to his savvines of technology, you could understand him from how fast he pulls documents to use them for his argument. No question about that that he so good at that.
I think it is not bad when we allow ourselves talking about the oldies and new songs, a good opportunity to revisit our childhood, ዝካረታት ነሐድስ ኣተረጋግማና ደጊምና ሓቢርና ንድህስስ.
Hey Saay & Haile S.,
ጋመይ ንኢሽትለይ ትዓብየለይ ደላ ትዓብየለይ ( so this is the underage ጋል ኣቦይ ዑቕበ he is dreaming to marry) and he compares her with the
ሓያም ጋል ኣቦይ ጊለ
ዓባይ ሰለፋ ከም ኣድጊ በቕለ
Saay, how come you consider this as an “expression of love”? This is worse than the “ልጅነትዋ” song of Muluken Melese.
Haile S. I doubt you too like this song.
ወይለይ, Was I there? (ኔረ ድየ?)😂 I am just telling people who romanticize old songs that old songs had their fair share of stink bombs.
By the way, there is a new song, by a female singer, who is giving advice to her future-boyfriend and one of them is:
“ንእሽተያ እንተኢሎምኻ: ባዕለይ ከዕብያ በሎም” or something like that. So, that appears to be ingrained and…
universal? Yesterday, every Eritrean woman’s ideal boyfriend, Idris Alba (I don’t know any Eritrean woman who doesn’t have a thing for him) got engaged. To someone 16 years his junior.
Hey Saay & Haile S.,
At last here is Kalab Teweldemedhn who is honest enough and sings “መልሱዶ ቀሊል ኢዩ” meaning “ኣይንኽእሎን ኢና” 😂
ፍርቂ ካሕሳ ከፊልካ ኣለኻ ( sala two wonderful songs of Eng. Asgedom).

Hi Haile S.
Thank you very much..For the above ..
So, now we here are divided in to two groups ..Past lovers and future lovers but we are are supposed to have the 3rd group who love now the present..Look carefully since yesterday we are in memory of the past.
From the modern. This one is for you. ኣፍሮ….. ኮዝከብ ናይ ሰማይ ኢኻ……
MerHaba Tzigereda, SAAY, Kbrom, Hai;eS, iSema …..
Beauty, I think, is what a society constructs it to be. Some emphasize on color, others on texture and tone of skin, some add to what they have others disfigure their natural bodies. So beauty and body image is a social construct and as similar beliefs and constructs of society, they change with the changing outlooks of the particular society depending on how active the interaction with outside world is. Cultures influence each other. Look at some African tribal body artworks: you will see works done at elongating the neck to a dangerous height, some enlarge their lips by stretching it using circular objects, others work on disfiguring their ears, etc. If Wed-Amir or Yemane Barya lived among those tribes they would surely sing : እታ ቦጃል ከንፈራ/ ኣእዛና፣ ቀልዓጽ ክሳዳ፡ ሸራፍ ኣስናና. Now, I’m sure the new generation of those tribes don’t approve of those body disfiguring expressions of beauty.
The second point, which is more important, is what Tzigereda is raising, i.e., the use of established negative societal values to promote one’s view: in this case male chauvinism. Some of our traditional songs perpetuate male dominance by belittling women or describing them as objects well placed in a shopping parlor. The songwriter then gives us an image of a male singer doing window shopping using what the society established for him to be the expression of beauty. As pointed out by Tzigereda: some writers choose out the virtues of beauty, others express beauty by eliminating the imperfect descriptors such as in this case:
ሓያም ጋል ኣቦይ ጊለ
ዓባይ ሰለፋ ከም ኣድጊ በቕለ
The third point I want to bring to Bxeyti Tzigereda is that women too do their part in lionizing or disparaging men’s characters. The difference in the way both sexes do it in our society. If you attend women’s circle in Tigre weddings you would be surprised seeing the harsh way they tear down the bridegroom through singing. Also, in Tigrigna wedding, the same happens. Reading some Eritrean folklore literature, and few movies depicting traditional Tigrigna society, I can bet women are not less potent in tearing down men.
The forth point: why all the attention to beauty? Well, it is just part of our genes. Look at nature, how far sexes go to attract the opposite? That biological drive does not stop even when married. The men in this forum will testify how many times they were chastised by their wives for not paying attention for the small details they made, make up, dress, furniture arrangement, etc. Of course, the poor male is only after one thing, and that is to leave as many offspring as possible. They do that either by magnifying the descriptors of beauty or by eliminating the imperfect characteristics of what society constructed to be beautiful.
The fifth point: We are not condemned to be slaves of evolution. Because we are humans, we can reign on some harmful societal beliefs. For instance, elongating one’s neck beyond what our anatomical structure can sustain is dangerous; disfiguring our body is dangerous, bewitching and disparaging women is an acceptable, etc….

As for Yemane’s “ጾግራ ነዊሕ ጭራ ፈረስ” hmmm…did he see such a woman in those indian films or in the Romanzo magazines? As africans, over 99.9% eritreans have short and ተሪር hair. Maybe due to such songs the wave of ኣርቲፊሻል hair has become so popular that in Asmera and ከባቢኣን ፋኛቱራ ይዕበስ ኣሎ ይበሃል, the epidemy ስግር ዶብ ሓሊፉ. Dont ask me how many ኪሎታት ይምዘን the additional hair, but I know that there is sleeping distress because it is uncomfortable. And it symbolises ውሕልነት ናይ ገዛ ናይ ክሽነ, the still most demanded criteria.

Exactly that is what am talking about. Ytrefena
Kokob, Haile, Tzigereda, Kbrom and all our Ethio friends:
Speaking of hair and braiding, etc, @Gecho visualizes a world when Tigray will secede from Ethiopia and Teddy Afro (whose wife is Tigrayan) has to write a song about the separation (never mind the meanness, motivation behind the poem; assess its quality):
ክመስቀሉ ስር: መቀሌ እንዳልመጣ:
ኣጥር ተበጅቶ እግሬ ማለፍያ ኣጣ:
ትርሃስዬ ቆንጆ ያደግሽው ባምባሻ
ለሰባራው ልቤ ሁፒለት ወጌሻ:
ያንገትሸ ጌጣጌጥ; የጸጉርሽ ቁናኖ
ሊያሳብደኝ ነው ታእየ ልኮኖ::
You are indeed multi-talented. Only that she must be eritrean, from an eritrean mother and a gondere father, and she grew up in eritrea. I do not think that Teddy Afro will be heartbroken if tigray goes.
Wait. You do know I did NOT write the poem; I am merely re-typing what @Gecho wrote. No talent required in re-typing what others wrote 🙂
Go beyond Horizon,,watch and enjoy it.
What language is this in tigray with a tigrigna dancing guayla? I mean the first clip.
Yep Amuni thank you for asking..
The first music is Ethiopian Eroup song by Yeshi Brhane, and the 2nd is by Eritrean singer known as by name Fyori Brhne also they are both from border Ethnic groups.
The first is Erobian Song cultural too meanings are very similar if you know the language you will only make rarely translated..
To close out the weekend, here’s a video that doesn’t have choreographed epileptic seizures, doesn’t have random meadows and valleys, and it doesn’t exhaust you just listening to it. Even the Wata (one-string violin) is subdued and well-behaved instead of overwhelming the vocalist. It’s just people having a good time and it’s contagious.

See you next weekend!
What a wonderful weekend! Nice, really your all have participated and shined the page ..
Yes, indeed. I come accross this video the other day and it is by Hicham & Hanane, I think from Morocco.
May be saay will analyze the details but it does resemble Amharic.
Not me! SGJ and Ahmed Raji are the fans of one-string instrument with the annoying sound:) I also have no idea what people from Morroco and Mauritania are saying even when they are speaking Arabic. They long decided that vowels are useless so they just use consonants making only those with perfect fluency in the language and all its dialects (like SGJ) understand what the hell they are saying:)
You are always in good mood and you make fun out of almost anything. I wonder if this is how you are in real life. It must be a treasure to those around you all the time.
I heard saay is like wedigebeya at 7:00 in the evening going to the center city with buss number 2 .
Dear Berhe Y,
Yes, I saw this one last year and it is very near to Amharic songs and horn in general..We are connected to the world at large and you will find a lot of similar cultures every where from every corner of the world..
Is this even a music ? I thought they are in a cemetery putting someone to rest. I wouldn’t call this music. If an alien comes I think he will somehow find something in common.
By the way ,it was one of the best weekend in awate forum.
Even before I saw the full video, the first glance of it tells me it is a disaster.
The guy’s name is NOT ዳዊት “ወርዶፋ” it is ዳዊት ሆርዶፋ
ወርዶፋ is not a word…
That only turned me off to watch your video.. 🙂
Well, you know, we no speak Afan Oromo…. I didn’t upload the video which brings the intriguing possibility that the guy doesn’t know how to spell his name in Geez because they use Latin alphabets 🙂 🙂
By the way, if you want Eritreans to stay out of the affairs of Ethiopia, make Afan Oromo the official language. Then we wouldn’t have a clue what’s going on and leave you alone:)
Again, you are welcome.
It is again as most of the tigrinya love songs about him…how much he walked ( እግረይ ነቒዑ ( is this romantic? )
Isn’t that the very definition of love, in any language? ሞትኩልሽ፥ እኽለ ማይ ኣብዩኒ, etc? Sometimes in two languages, simultaneously: Like Temu singing about his love Hana who just is not answering his phone calls and he says with his cute Amharic accent “እኔ ነኝ ማውቀው ከም-ከመይ- ከም ዝሓደርኩ”. Then they meet in the club and dance or he is just reminiscing, whatever.
The dude who is in love (most likely, lust) with the Akhria girl was going to other neighborhoods ክዛናጋዕ: there is only so much walking you can do in Akhria.😂 But seriously, there is one truth: the new songs are infinitely better than the old.
Hi Sal and Kbrom and of course tegadalit Tzigereda
Sal: I agree with you that the new Eri songs are better, but not infinitely better. But Eritreans for some reason relish everything of the past
And Sal once told me that he asked an artist to depict the lyrics of a Tig song and the artist came up with an alien. That encapsulates some of the absurdity of descriptions of love songs
The new generation are little better than their parents especialy of the ghedli generation and one of my favorites is that the new generation always say “amlak ymesgehn” unlike their parents, who used to say, werqi or tsiffet alena and in this case their are infinitely better but in songs, the vestiges of the past linger.
Sal, do not push me to write an article tiled: where is his power?
Well, it’s true 😂 since you are spilling things here about the ideal Eritrean girl as described by male singers, let’s do the math. If you take:
ፇግራ ጭራ ፈረስ ኣብ ጎና ዝበፅሕ
And she is very quiet, inarticulate 🤫 and almost mute, what do you have besides an alien, 👽
Tsigereda, saay, MS
Not long time ago one ናይ ወጻኢ as they call us in Eritrea went ዓዲ and asked his father
ፓፓ ኣነ ኣነ ክምርኦ እደሊ፤ጽብቕቲ፡ ነዋህ፡ ቀያህ፤ውሽጣ ይኹን ደገኣ ሓዳስ፡ ብዙህ ወጻኢታት ዘይትደሊ፡ኣብ ዝበልክያ ቦታ ሕራይ ኢላ ትኸይድ……
ሰብኣይ ትቕብል ኣቢሎም ወደይሺ ከምዛ ትብላ ዘሎኻ መኪና ጥራይ ኢና ክንረኽበልካ ንኽእል።
Songs reflect mostly the socio political and economic situation of their time, imagine if there was a mobile telephone 100 years ago they would have not said ጓለቦይ ቀሺ ዘራጽዮን ሕለፊ ናብቲ ሩባ ማል ተስትዩ መሲልኪ simply he would have called and say ድሕሪ እቲ ሓሰር ኣለኹ ኣብኣ ምጺ
Speaking of the current songs, guess which song has the highest hit today, Yonas Meste ጉያ ጉያ ፍቕሪ 6.6 million; because 1) it reflects ስግረዶብን ፍቕርን the challenges of tens of thousands youth and 2) is believed to be true story.
Regarding the song “ guya guya” which is also played by many krarists, meaning that many identify themselves with the song, is a reflection of the bad socioeconomical & political situation at home.The singer is desperate because he is convinced his lover ( who fled Eritrea and lives in Ethiopia) left him for a wealthier man. It looks like the situation of the youngsters is much much worse than the time Tekle Tesfasghi sang “ብስእነተይ ድዩ… ገና ኢዩ ዕድለይ ” ( at least he and his lover were at home, in Eritrea).
What do you mean his ‘cute’ Amharic accent? Temesgen Gebreegziabher is a Tigraway…
Granted he is ye Addis Abeba lij..
Too late to the party again. So, there is this word your peeps struggle with and unfortunately it is very common in Tigrinya songs:
which they pronounce
which makes it “cute amharic accent.”
Even Hewan, the girl from Jano Band: she covers ፍቕረይ ተለመኒ perfectly, except for ፍቅረይ. Repeat after me: ፍቕረይ ፍቕረይ
Other examples of cute ፍቅረይ available upon request.
You are welcome:)
I will revert to the immortal Be’alu Girma’s Oromay as one of the characters Fiameta trying to teach the main Character Tigrigna, he responded to here
“…ባክሽ በጠዋቱ ይሄንን ጉሮሮ የሚቧጥት ቋንቋችሁን ተይኝ…” 🙂
You did not like the ደዲሕሪኣ ስዓብኩ: ክስልያ ምእንቲ (I followed her to spy on her.)?? HeeHee, that shows you are not Asmarino saay.
Don’t you know what used to happen to Asmarinos during 60’s, they follow the girls they love up to their house (I followed her to spy on her) and the more Asmarinotat awalid deqi Asmera knowing that they are following them would knock on different door to mislead/delude them where their house is. Next day: ቀንፈዘው! For more information please refer to Tsigereda or Sara!
Nothing is like the original. Here is the original
This is a great review Kbrom. Thanks a lot. Your artistic skill is there for all of us to see. Now, SAAY is gonna come to ask you to review “lbey mdrebeda”, another beautiful song of Ustaz Osman Abdulrahim. I guarantee that.

Another Eritrean song of love by Estifanos Zematch ኣብ ከተማ ምጽዋዕ፡ that is fitting with your timely song review is:

(Perhaps Blink or MS could find and post the song with their thoughts/review. Perhaps you Kbrom.)
The ‘boycott/cold chilling non mention/ stealthy group think, designed planed actions’ is duly noted.” And the barometer read….
My apology for showing up to the disco party uninvited. I rained on the last Wed Tukul, Abeba Haile and Co party in Oakland just last year…. Well, I can only say sorry for bringing politics (ተቓዋሚ) into a party of ህግደፍ in 2017 in Oakland and sorry for highlighting the politics in your non politics jebena session now.

Dear Haile S.
Why did you do that? Let, us convince each other .
Given how the debate went before and is going now on this bad dichotomy, I wish you good luck if you still remain convinced there will be convincing of one by the other. Personally, that is how I see it.
Nice combination…and by the way, the accused have never argued along this made-up order; its the TPLF fanatics who invoke this to whitewash TPLF’s evil designs over Eritrea and its people. It comes handy when they want to defend wayane. sorry, I know you are a clean-shaven guys, cleaner and smoother than SAAY, who does not want to entertain mud-slinging, but that is the reality. Anyway, I enjoyed your combination and I agree meto bmeto (100%).

Hi All; I think the problem is more than I thought. You don’t have to be Ethiopian to save this great lake. The way it is going there is no need for Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia to fight about the water. this ugly weed will do the job. Why is it the Egyptians and Sudanese contributing on this real problem?
Dear Awate Friend,
Today I found in my inbox the bellow poem..
“From dust we come,
And to dust again, we become,
Growth is a blessing,
An undeniable dressing.
Walking the line we call “existence”,
Affirmations are part of our essence.
The point we begin;
Is the same point of our ending”
