''Roy Ayers meets Sun Ra. 
Unique Afro-jazz-funk with vibes and watery guitars from 1972. Mulatu Astatke is an Ethiopian musician and arranger, he is known as the father of Ethio-jazz. Mulatu Astatke is one of Ethiopia's major musicians.
In the late 1950s, he travelled to London, and later Boston ( where he was the first African student at Berklee College of Music ) and New York, absorbing jazz and Latin music, recording several LPs (one of which, Mulatu of Ethiopia, has become a legend among DJs in recent years), and eventually bringing both modern jazz and Latin influences and specific instruments back home to Addis Ababa.
On piano, organ, vibes and percussion, with his arrangements and compositions, and as an agent provocateur, he became a pivotal figure in a great era of Ethiopian pop and jazz, from 1968 to 1974. To this day, he remains a ubiquitous presence in the Ethiopian music scene, as club owner, music school founder, radio DJ, composer, arranger and instrumentalist.''
