THE BEST OF ELIAS NEGASH
is a compilation that represents my musical journey across time, space, and what I have always thought is the special aspect about ethnic diversity.
The songs in this collection meld the traditional and the modern sounds of Ethiopian melodies that rely on a unique pentatonic scale inherent in much of Ethiopian music. I draw heavily from my Jazz roots and the best of today’s modern instruments to create an arrangement that appeals to broad audiences. I would like to thank God for every blessing he has given me. I would also like to thank my wife Sophia Bereket for standing by me and supporting me through this journey. Last but not least, I would like to thank all the talented musicians that played on my CD. God bless, Elias Negash.
