Angel of the desert

Since many readers shared my appreciation of the video I posted by Ethiopian Christian singer Mirtinesh, here is another clip of the mysterious and angelic chanteuse.

I wish I knew more about Mirtinesh and the music of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church. As it stands, I'm aware only of the video clips that are on YouTube. Watching them, one has a sense of a community with a rich spiritual life, full of faith and grace.
