Mulatu Astatke is an Ethiopian musician and arranger best known as the father of Ethio-jazz.

His albums focus primarily on instrumental music, and Astatke appears on all three known albums of instrumentals that were released during Ethiopia’s Golden ’70s.

He collaborated with many notable artists in both countries, arranging and playing on recordings by Mahmoud Ahmed, and appearing as a special guest with Duke Ellington during a tour of Ethiopia in 1973. His Western audience expanded even further when the 2005 Jim Jarmusch film Broken Flowers featured seven of Astatke’s songs.

Hip hop artists have also sampled Astatke’s songs extensively, for example in the works of Nas, Damian Marley, Kanye West, Cut Chemist, and Knaan.

The New York Times describes SOURCE as “a life’s worth of experiences into an hourlong listen,” while Q Magazine says “Elevated throughout by Garcia’s immaculate phrasing, this is music that fuses the tradition and modern with real purpose.
