Mulatu Astatke, Ethiopian jazz


#1

Another amazing African jazz performer.

I think African musicians will become much more predominant in this decade and adding a continued freshness to our aging jazz.

Good stuff :slight_smile:

I have a couple of his albums and enjoy his blend of traditional, Afro-Cuban and an additional African spin.

At times I feel that he must have admired Roland Kirk but I enjoy Kirk so its a win-win.

Glad you liked him too. We don’t get a lot of good news from Ethiopia.
