While searching around for some background music for a video I'm creating of a recent Ethiopian trip, I ran across the song
Mekeyershin Salawq (Amazon Preview)
by "the Ethiopian Elvis", Alemayehu Eshete.
I really like this song, but I'm curious what it's about. Anyone speak Amharic and can translate? If it's not possible to translate the whole song, can you give me the gist of it?
