Ethiopiques 4 Ethio Jazz & Musique Instrumentale 1969-1974

one of the most accessable and popular one in the wonderful series (up to 21 now I think). for those not familiar, the Ethiopian amalgamation of Arabic, American, and African cultures is difficult to describe... imagine if James Brown was Egyptian, jamming with some of the most bad ass musicians East of the River Nile. (no vocals on this particular volume)


and yes this is the music Jarmusch used for Brocken Flowers. such a clever lad...
