Repress.Review from the Soundway site: ' Mulatu Astatke is perhaps the most important and influential musician to come out of Ethiopia in the second half of the twentieth century. His inspired synthesis of Jazz and Afro-Cuban styles with the ethereal musical traditions of his home country has produced a body of work that stands alone in the fields of spiritual jazz and soulful, meditative grooves. We are proud to present a 10 EP containing a selection of rare tracks, originally issued on small run 45s in Ethiopia and unavailable ever since. These tracks show the diversity of Mulatus music running from heavy and driving funk, to Afro-Latin rhythms and deep and introspective jazz.' Tip!
