Cologne, Frankfurt and Berlin: The Godfather of Ethio-Jazz comes around
- Date published
Because in Cologne and Berlin Mulatu Astatke, the great innovator of ethiopian Jazz from the sixties and seventies, introduces his brandnew liaison with the british free-thinking collective The Heliocentrics.
Together they met last year for a heavy jamming week in London and recorded the album Inspiration Information: Mulatu Astatke/The Heliocentrics soon to be released on Strut Records.
Live they will underpin how good they fit together and show that their collaboration is not only a real unique bobby-dazzler on CD. With fresh breaks, rhythms, harmonies and melodies that dance between Jazz and Soul, between Afro and Funk, they will take you on a journey through retro music that does’nt sound retro at all.
So if you are a libertine that likes to dance to extravaganzas then don’t miss the opportunity to see this ultra rare teamwork.
