Mulatu Astatke – New York-Addis-London

Mulatu Astatke – New York-Addis-London (The story of Ethio Jazz 1965-1975)

I borrowed this album randomly in my local library the other day. I’ve heard about Mulatu Astatke before, but never listened to any of his albums properly.

This one is available on Youtube in full at the moment and features the first Ethio Jazz recordings ever made.

Personal Favourites: Yegelle Tezeta, Yekermo Sew, Shagu, Asiyo Bellema, Ené Alantchie Alnorem,…

ETC.

The whole album is bliss.
