Mulatu & Heliocentics

The third in Strut’s Inspiration Information studio collaboration series brings together a pairing between one of Africa’s great bandleaders, Ethiopia’s Mulatu Astatke, and Malcolm Catto’s Heliocentrics collective. This album features select covers from Astatke’s landmark 1970s albums and 45s released on the Ethiopian Amha imprint and later compiled on the Ethiopiques series and original songs written by the Heliocentrics and arranged by Astatke. Pick this up now!
