Get down with the latest jazz vibe
Created and named by the inimitable musician Astatki Mulatu, Ethio-jazz is a vibrant, new jazz genre that will appeal to StubHub audiences worldwide. A composer, performer and innovator, the Ethiopian-born Mulatu developed his own musical fusion, which introduces new sounds to the American jazz vibe. Latin rhythms run throughout his music, to the sheer delight of his enraptured audiences, who can’t help but groove along to those funky jazz tunes. At the age of sixteen, Mulatu’s wealthy parents sent him from his African hometown, Addis Ababa, to be educated in North Wales in the United Kingdom. His musical gift then transported him to the renowned Trinity College of Music in London, where he enthusiastically studied the clarinet, piano and harmony. Seeking further stimulation to feed his musical appetite, he enrolled at the Eric Gilder School of Music and performed for audiences in Soho with fellow expatriate musicians from Africa and the Caribbean. See his musical genius live in concert with tickets to Mulatu Astatke's next gig.

In 1963, Mulatu left the UK behind him to enroll as the first ever African student to attend Boston’s jazz-oriented Berklee College, in the United States. Moving swiftly on after college, Mulatu moved to New York where he would perform to new audiences, embracing the Latin and jazz genres, which were fast gaining popularity in the city. Mulatu Astatke finally returned to his home-country Ethiopia in 1969, where he went on to develop and give name to his unique Ethio-jazz that music lovers around the world know and love today. Mulatu Astatke tickets bring you straight to the heart of the jazz scene! With the use of a wah-wah pedal, Mulatu is able to extend his musical notes to create the unmistakable "wah-wah’ sound that features in the Ethio-jazz style. Wah-wah is a sound that is popular in many musical genres, but which remains synonymous with funk and rhythm and blues. Now something of a cult hero for music fans, he has performed in some of the world’s best venues and even made unusual appearances at festivals such as Dekmantel Festival. Watch as he enthralls the audience with his unmistakably rhythmic sounds. If you enjoy his sound, then you should also look for tickets to Chris Botti and Coco Montoya.
