Black Flower

Psyche-delicious Ethio-dub-jazz

As if John Zorn put on Fela Kuti’s shoes and imbibed Mulatu Astatke’s whirls.

Highly skilled musicians based in Brussels with a large degree of openness, striving for original music and delivering a hypnotic and entertaining groove, bending all purist rules to good effect while still highly suitable for the age-old human ritual of dancing!
On their coming release, the Ethio-oriental based element mixed with the African dub groove aspect gets explored further, developing Black Flower’s musical identity and unique sound to the fullest. The new album releases April 12th 2019 on Sdban Records.
