Music - Mulatu Astatke

Sunday 18th November 2012

As part of the London Jazz Festival, in association with the BBC, Mulatu Astatke will be performing at London KoKo, 1A Camden High Street, London, NW1 7JE on Sunday 18th November. Doors open at 7:00pm.

Mulatu Astatke is an Ethiopian musician known as the father of Ethio-jazz; a unique blend of pop, modern jazz, traditional Ethiopian music, Latin rhythms, Caribbean reggae, and Afro-funk. An intriguing past saw him study music in London, New York and Boston, play with Duke Ellington and set up his own music school all helping to shepherd in a golden age in Ethiopia's pop and jazz circles from 1968 to 1974. His recent work has seen him tour and record extensively and here, joined by a cast of very special guests, Mulatu is making his long awaited London return, playing old favourites as well as tracks from his new EP to be released this autumn. Don't miss this opportunity to see the father of Ethio-Jazz live in London.

Tickets, £20, can be purchased via the KoKo website.
