  • Mildly interesting but not something I'll play often

    By Doppler E. Fect
    Ok, mild jazz exotica from Ethiopia. Fela its not, there's precious little fire to this album though some of the more exotic scales used in the soloing are interesting. Fairly light listening.
  • Best CD bought on iTunes

    By $eb
    possibly my best buy, don't think I was able to find it anywhere else, but amazing jazz, funky, sultry, soothing, ahead of it's time. I recomend Netsanet (liberty) & Asmarina (my amara)
  • pretty good

    By judgmentaljoe98
    some songs rule
  • some of the best jazz funk

    By sneaks n beats
    this album opened the world of authentic 60-70's afro-jazz for me. I also got it after hearing it on Broken Flowers, and ever since I've been collecting albums from Astatke and others of this period (T.P Orchestra Poly-Rythmo, The Black Santiagos). Dengue Fever takes from Astatke's rhythym.
  • Not to be missed

  • Don't pass this album by!

    By mwilliams12220
    I am so happy to finally have this album. I was first introduced to Mulatu Astaqe by the movie "Broken Flowers" and had always hoped to find an album of his music. I can tell this will soon be a favorite jazz album of mine. Hopefully it will become on of yours also...

    By sHanDee
    Three top releases on iTunes for me are: THIS, Blackwater, and Deep Buddha.
  • Wow!

    By soulmaits
    I just discovered this by a round about way - I was searching for the music from Nip/Tuck, and this is what I found! It's fabulous. I've listened to it every day since I bought it, in my car and throughout the day. It's the perfect music for entertaining, I love to cook to it! Buy this music - you won't be disappointed! My fave is Yegelle Tezeta...
  • Ehtiopian funk is good for the heart

    By Chazperanto
    I love love love Ethiopian funk/jazz. A friend turned me on to Mahmoud Ahmed when I was in a bad place and it helped me through as it continues to. It has a joy and sadness unparalled in most other forms of music I have heard. When I put on the "Broken FLowers" DVD and the beautiful music of Mulatu Astatqe began playing, I was in heaven. The film was weak, but the soundtrack superb if only for the reggae and Ethipian music. This mixture of traditional ethiopian scales against western instrumentaiton and arrangments is a wonderful and bizarre music. Like no other. Download and experience bliss and mystery.
