The following video clip is from the day the renowned artist Dr. Tilahun Gessesse performed at the Finfinne (Addis Ababa) University’s Students’ Hall (also known as Lidet) some 20 years ago. The music show was a benefit concert for the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF), which had been, at that time, a member of the Transitional Government of Ethiopia (TGE) until it was forced to withdraw from the transitional process by TPLF’s violent aggression./nThe clip shows Dr. Tilahun Gessesse performing his Afan Oromo classic hit, Salaamata, under the flag of the OLF, the de facto flag of Oromummaa. The audience was on its feet during the entire show, and was overtaken by the emotional and historic comeback of Dr. Tilahun./nMany experts regard the early 1990′s as the Second Oromo Revolution; the first being the cultural and political awakening of the Oromo during the second-half of the 1970′s.
