Monday’s Music Box: Yekermo Sew

Keeping with the theme from last week, and hinting at where we are going, a little more Afro-inspired jazz for you.

This time a contemporary group from Spain called Sinouj.

The piece is by Mulatu Astatke, the Grand-daddy of Ethio-Jazz.  An amazing piece in it’s own right, brilliantly played by these dudes.  I am falling in love with this band.

These guys are taking jazz where it needs to go.  Encompassing the world in sound.

(There is an invisible doumbek player off-screen to the right somewhere.  Can’t see him, but he’s there.)
