Mulatu Astatke & Ibrahim Maalouf at Byblos International Festival (Double-Bill)
Mulatu Astatke is regarded as the father of Ethio-jazz, a unique blend of traditional Ethiopian music, jazz, funk, reggae and Latin rhythms.
His big breakthrough came in 2005 when eight of his tracks were used in Jim Jarmusch’s movie Broken Flowers.
Winner of the Best Jazz Artist award in the 2013 edition and the Best World Music album in the 2014 edition of the “Victoires de la Musique”, Lebanese trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf plays a rare mix of jazz, blues, Middle Eastern, and Afro-Cuban music with his quarter-tone trumpet.
This magnificent evening will bring together these two artists and their bands for an exclusive double-bill!
