Black Flower

Psyche-delicious Ethio-dub-jazz

 
Psyche-delicious and accessible 21st century Ethio-dub-jazz. As if John Zorn put on Fela Kuti’s shoes and imbibed Mulatu Astatke’s whirls.
As an undeniable part of the Pitchfork generation: highly skilled musicians with a large degree of openness – Black Flower strives for original music and deliveres a vibrant, hypnotic and variously entertaining musical mix of Ethio jazz, afrobeat, oriental and dub, bending all purist rules to good effect and claiming to the age-old human ritual of dancing!
The Independent – A vibrant, variously entertaining album which bends the purist rules to good effect
Gilles Peterson, BBC 6 – Brilliant
Les Inrocks – Album Artifacts is part of the 10 must-hear African albums of 2017
De Morgen – 4**** albumreview
