Mulatu Is Timeless

March 16, 2010

Mulatu Astatke makes timeless music, inventor of the Ethio-Jazz, his work has inspired many imitations and many admirers (Quantic, Cut Chemist, Nas… to name a few).  On February 1st, thanks to Mochilla he blessed a sold-out Luckman Theater in Los Angeles with an incredible show with assistance of L.A. legends as Bennie Maupin, Azar Lauwrence and Phil Ranelin. Many classics as this “Yekermo Sew” were played and of course new material.
