Music Monday: ethiopian jazz

I was watching Broken Flowers this weekend (on a Jarmusch marathon lately), and the soundtrack largely revolves around Mulatu Astatke songs. I’ve always been a fan of his song Yèkèrmo Sèw, but never really thought to look into other songs. Ah, this movie did it for me. iTunes purchase minutes later, on repeat all weekend (luckily Billy finds it just as amazing as I do.) Tezeta is just so unbelievably beautiful. I want to listen to it while laying in the dark with my eyes closed, volume all the way up…
