Ethiopia's superstar - Mulatu Astatke for Maijazz 2020

Ethiopian Mulatu Astatke is a favorite on stage in both Bergen (Nattjazz) and Oslo (Cosmopolite) - always with sold-out concerts. Now he's finally ready for Maijazz!

The world musician Mulatu Astatke has inspired a number of different artists, Nas, Damien Marley, K'naan, Kanye West and Fleetwood Mac to name a few, with his innovative "ethio jazz". Ethiopian jazz is a powerful and unique fusion of traditional Ethiopian music with jazz, afro-funk, soul and Latin rhythms.
Astatke quickly gained a large following, and eventually appeared in a number of historical albums, particularly the release of the "Ethiopiques" series, which attracted many new fans to this music. In addition, the music has been used in several films, and both Elvis Costello and Robert Plant are big fans of Astatke.
At 76 years old, he is as active as ever, playing sparkling concerts around the world. In other words, it is high time the godfather of ethio jazz comes to Stavanger!
