Somehow I didn't see your post Charlie, until now.

Thanks for posting that song!!

Of course, examples of those folks songs would be 'welcome' on this thread. I'm not worried about 'general interest'. This thread will interest those it interests...

Btw, I've never heard of the African ethnic group called Gurage.
So, of course, I had to google that name, and found out that the group name is pronounced (goo rah gay) or at least that's what this SIM -Serving In Mission-Gurage website 'says'.

Of course, Wikipedia has a page on the Gurage people: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gurage

I hope that you post some songs from these people, Charlie!

Thanks!!!
