This is perhaps the best album from cult Ethiopian deep jazz hero Mulatu Astake

This highly sought-after rarity is probably the best African deep jazz record there is - imagine a 1970s indy label deep jazz release but recorded in Africa on a label run by the national airline!

This truly is one of those 'holy grail' records 

Very highly recommended!
