Only the badest Judens out there

Mulatu Astake

leave a comment »

Many of you will recognize this music from the Broken Flowers soundtrack. Astake is one of the most famous East African jazz musicians. His music is the kind of raspy stuff you would hear in a Malle or Godard film,

Here is my favorite track, (please ignore the d-bag dancing in this video….)

for all you hardcore K’naan fans out there, you will notice that his most recent track ABC samples a few seconds from the above track and loops it.

listen for yourselves…
