Mulatu Astatke

March 23 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

£23 - £25

The father of Ethio-Jazz, Mulatu Astatke blesses us with his presence for a solo show alongside guests Fatima & Eglo Live Band, Ruby Rushton and Seb Rochford (Polar Bear).

 

Not many musicians can claim to have invented a genre, but Astatke is one of them. With touches of funky wah-wah synths, rolling saxophones, ethereal flutes, and the relentless drive of Afro-Cuban rhythms, Astatke’s unique tracks reflect what Ethio-Jazz was designed to do – get feet moving and bodies grooving.
