Mulatu Astatke

Director: Samuel Thiebaut
Genre: Live Show


Thanks to Jim Jarmush’s film Broken Flowers, Mulatu Astatke is no longer a well-kept secret among fans of Ethiopian music. In 2005, the man who is considered the father of Ethiopian jazz finally offered to a new audience the atypical rhythm of his music. A jazz out of the ordinary that he sculpts behind his vibraphone and his percussions. A singular music bathed in Latin sounds, instrumental soul and Ethiopian folk music, where percussion and brass converse in a new way. With Mulatu Astatke, the samba is as if shifted and the jazz takes twisted paths, often very funky. A groove from Abyssinia of which the septuagenarian remains one of the most inspired representatives. Mulatu Astatke will invite for a special evening a nice line-up of artists whose composition will be revealed very soon.
