Za-Dengel,

No problem. Happy to be of some assistance. I myself prefer many of the old varieties of songs from Ethiopia (including Oromo ones), Somalia, Sudan, etc. But, I think the song you're after is called: "Karaan Manni Abba Gadaa Eesa" [ roughly, = "የአባ ጋዳ ቤት መንገድ የትኛው ነው?" ወይም "የአባ ጋዳ ቤት ወዴት ነው?"] & there are few versions of the same on YouTube.

The phrase you used/quoted - “ታኤ ሴና ኢሳ በበሬሳ”- is part of the song's lyric. Here are some links to few versions of this song that I found on YouTube but you can find others by using the title of the song "Karaan Manni Abba Gadaa Eesa". Of course, different posters use different manners of spelling the title of Ethiopian, Somali, Sudanese, etc, songs to frustrate those looking for songs. Good Luck.

1- video/music - Ali Birra - Karaan Manni Abba Gadaa Eesa.



2- video/music: Ali Birra - Karaan Mana Abbaa Gadaa eessa (Oromo Music). [a better sounding version by Ali Birra - sang at a concert].



3- video/music: a version I like better - in a traditional Hararghe-Oromo style - & is by another artist. [Oromo Music - Mahdi Sheka - Manni Abbaa Gadaa].
