  • thank you guy who knows about store.

  • I’ve been looking for anything by this guy! All i could find was a song on one of those Ethiopoques comps. Good to know somebody reissued this!

  • rujan75….ya been looking for mualtu stuff? there is quite a bit about currently….”worthy” is a label to seek……..Jim Jarmush’s 2005 film Broken Flowers made pumped the general populus to seek the sound. Mulatu Astatke (also spelt Astatqé on French releases) was interviewed in Wax Poetics magazine (Issue #14, Fall 2005) by Miles Cleret (of SOUNDWAY records as mentioned above by m.dejean)

    also check out Getatchew Mekurya, a killer ethiopian sax player…..i have found myself often lost and absorbed when leaving these records playing loud at home….

    best of luck

  • One Ethiopiques comp is nothing but Astatqe and his band, though it’s not obvious from the packaging (it looks like he’s only given writing credit, and not for all of the songs).
