Music - Mulatu Astatke

Saturday 13th September 2014

Mulatu Astatke will be performing at the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, London SE1 8XX on Saturday 13th September at 7:30pm.

Mulatu Astatke bears witness to an extraordinarily rich career as the father of Ethio-jazz. From his musical studies at Trinity College London and Berklee College of Music, Boston, through groundbreaking recordings for the legendary Amha label in Addis Ababa's golden age, to his soundtrack for a recent Jim Jarmush film, his adoption by the musical youth of Europe and the United States and sampling by hip hop royalty, Astatke has a unique musical history.

Tickets, £25 and £20, can be purchased via the Royal Festival Hall website.
