This is the first of a three part series of live CDs and DVDs from Mochilla!

Ethiopian, Mulatu Astatke is a giant in African music. He is the inventor of Ethio-jazz. His work has inspired many imitations, many admirers and a whole new generation of fans. His music veers from the sublime tezetas to the most foot stomping funk. The award winning and invaluable Ethiopiques series has shed a light into a vital and amazing music scene that existed in the Addis Ababa in the 60s. The composter/arranger of that era was Mulatu Astatke!

On February 1st he blessed the sold out Luckmann Theatre with an amazing show. He shared the stage with veterans of the Los Angeles jazz scene Bennie Maupin, Azar Lawrence and Phil Ranelin. The performance is beautiful, showcasing many classics as well as some new material.  Nas, Damien Marley, Cut Chemist, Quantic, Madlib and K’naan all have felt the influence of Ethio-jazz – this DVD honors Mulatu and his music.!

The CD & DVD is packaged in a thick hardback mini-book, complete with extensive liner notes and photos!
