The legendary father of Ethio Jazz, Mulatu Astatke has just released his latest studio album and first solo work in over two decades, Mulatu Steps Ahead. If you are familiar with the compilation series Ethiopiques released by Paris-based record label Buda Musique, you would certainly know of him. He also came back on the radar in 2005 when several of his tracks were used on the soundtrack for Jim Jarmusch’s film Broken Flowers.
