    A charismatic performer with an impressive vocal style punctuated by high keening wails and mournful sobs, Mahmoud Ahmed gained fame amongst Ethiopians during the final years of the reign of Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie I, when he cut a series of classic recordings for labels like Phillips and Amha. Ahmed's emotionally expressive style was equally well suited to mournful Ethiopian Blues, or Tezeta, and ecstatic funk-inflected workouts that merged the sinuous melodies of traditional Ethiopian music with the syncopated rhythms of American acts like the Meters and The JBs. THE BEST OF MAHMOUD AHMED VOL. 1 sees the versatile performer revisiting a number of the tunes that made him famous and exercising his considerable vocal chops on a handful of bracing new compositions.
