Still grooving to the oldies



Many music lovers around the world still dance to songs from the oldies but goodies collection produced 30, 40 and even 50 years ago. Apparently, the same period of time is widely regarded as the golden age of music in Ethiopia. Meheret-Selassie Mokonnen explores what makes the golden age so golden. 

Distant sobbing and gasping are echoed from here and there. The auditorium filled with hiccups might mislead one as if something terrible has occurred. The truth is the event was an album release mini-concert. 

Why all these tear? One might ask. The answer is not only in the lyrics of the songs or even the melody. Both the old and young crowed seem to have found the kind of music they relate to; the kind of music that creates a bridge between generations.The old folks were reminded of their hey-days. While the young ones traveled back in time to the 70s.
