MULATU ASTATKE

AFRO LATIN SOUL VOL 2

STRUT



LP

Released: 13th Jul 2018

£21.99


The Godfather Of Ethio Jazz, has his early classics from 1966 reissued here, originally recorded as The Ethiopian Quintet.

Arriving after Astatke’s life-changing years studying at Berklee College in Boston, the albums were the first experiments in his pioneering sound, fusing Ethiopian cultural music with Afro Latin and jazz forms. Astatke would start to perfect his Ethio jazz sound later, but the two volumes of ‘Afro Latin Soul’ stand as important recordings documenting his early career. ‘Afro Latin Soul’ Volumes 1 and 2 come in their full original artwork and are painstakingly remastered - all formats feature personal liner notes by the man himself.
