Item ID: 334200

The third in Strut's Inspiration Information studio collaboration series brings together an intriguing pairing between one of Africas great bandleaders, Mulatu Astatke, with the next level musicianship of The Heliocentrics collective from the mighty roster of Stones Throw / Now Again. Known primarily through the successful Ethiopiques album series and the film soundtrack to Jim Jarmuschs Broken Flowers, Mulatu Astatke is one of Ethiopias foremost musical ambassadors. Informed by spells living and studying in the UK and the USA, his self-styled Ethio-jazz sound flourished during the "Swinging Addis" era of the late 60s as he successfully fused Western jazz and funk with traditional Ethiopian folk melodies, five tone scale arrangements and elements from music of the ancient Coptic church. The Heliocentrics have become known as one of the UKs foremost free-thinking collectives of musicians, inspired by a wide palette covering Sun Ra, James Brown, David Axelrod and all manner of psych, Afro and Eastern sounds.
