Wow! This is brilliant!

We've been evangelically recommending reissue records and CDs by the great Ethiopian musician Mulatu Astake to our customers for years now so it's an absolute pleasure to be able to recommend this brand new recording!

Mulatu has teamed up with The Heliocentrics - one of the premier live bands around, who have released records with the Jazzman, Now Again, and Stonesthrow labels! The result is better than anyone could have hoped, perfectly recreating the beauty of Mulatu's classic recordings with a subtly modern twist!

This is an essential purchase! You need this brilliant album!

Very highly recommended!
