Mezmur Protestant holds a prominent position in the preaching of Ethiopian Pentecostal Christian worshipers.
Furthermore, Mezmur Protestant has no restrictions as to what instruments or style of music chosen to be used to perform.
Old Mezmur Protestant
Pioneers such as Addisu Worku were one of the earliest mezmur performers and Misrach Voice Radio was the medium he used to let the masses hear his work.
The Mulu Wongel Church was an early church that began to develop mezmur singers, this in part because it was established mostly by Ethiopians themselves.
By the 1960’s, the Mulu Wongel Church began to introduce Ethiopians to Amharic Mezmur Protestant songs as opposed to the foreign language songs which were the norm at the time.
By the 1970’s after the government shut down the Mulu Wongel Church, two choir groups (Tsion Choir and Mulu Wongel Choir) continued to develop their mezmur and were soon followed by the Meserete Kristos Church Choir, Mekane Yesus Church Choir and Bethel Choir.
In the beginning, aside from Addisu Worku, there were also other prominent solo Mezmur Protestant singers, some of which include: Dr. Atalay Alem, Eyerusalem Teshome, Gizachew Worku, Tesfaye Gabisso, Shewaye Damte, Dereje Kebede, Tadesse Eshete and Tamrat Haile.
New Mezmur Protestant
More modern Mezmur Protestant singers include Dagmawi (Dagi) Tilahun of Mulu Wongel Church, Kalkidan (Lilly) Tilahun of Kale Hiwot, and Elias Abebe of Assembly of God Church, among many others.
Instrumental or more commonly known in Ethiopia as classical Mezmur Protestant songs are very popular and Bethel Music Ministry and Fikru Aligaz are some of the most well known.
There are also reggae Mezmur Protestant groups such as the Ahava Gospel Singers and former secular singers such as Hirut Bekele and Muluken have produced mezmurs after their conversions.
Unlike in the past, when Ethiopians had no support when they attempted their own version of Protestant Mezmur, today, there are over 20 digital Christian music studios in Ethiopia, some of which include: Kinnei, Bethelihem, COMNS, Nati, Begena, Albastor, CMM, Exodus, TDS, Shalom, Sami and Langanoo.
The following are 50 of the best old and new Amharic Mezmur Protestant that we hope you will appreciate.
