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.)
