Mulatu Astatke

It’s a first Festival visit for Ethiopian musician and arranger Mulatu Astatke, recognized as the father of Ethio-jazz and the man behind a significant portion of the soundtrack to the Jim Jarmusch film Broken Flowers. With a new album, Sketches of Ethiopia, this brilliant musical expeditionary mixes modern jazz with traditional Ethiopian music, Latino rhythms and Caribbean reggae, armed with his faithful vibraphone and congas. The result is, quite simply, magical and spellbinding. The band will feature reedman James Arben from the Mulatu Step Ahead band, and members of the Either/Orchestra, long time collaborators with Mulatu: leader Russ Gershon (reeds), Dan Rosenthal (trumpet), Gilson Schachnik (keyboards), Rick McLaughlin (bass), Oscar Suchanek (drums) and Vicente Lebron (congas). Also onboard will be Boston-based cellist Eric Law.

Maurin Auxemery
from Montréal will attend this concert:

For me, this is the absolute must-see artist of this Festival. I’ve wanted to see him since 2005 following the release of his soundtrack to Broken Flowers by director Jim Jarmusch. Recognized as the Father of Ethio-jazz, and a member of the incredible Éthiopiques alongside Mahmoud Ahmed, I consider Mulatu one of the greatest fusion artists in ethno-jazz.
