The Sounds of VTech / Tezeta De Ethiopia: A Special Mulatu Slideshow

Mulatu Astatke Slide Show

It is sometimes easy to forget that Timeless is the brainchild of two photographers and a promoter. But for those lucky enough to see the shows live there was always photographs there to remind you. For Verocai we had an amazing slide show of a recent trip to the North East of Brasil, Suite for Ma Dukes was presented complete with a tough look at Dilla’s Detroit and of course Mulatu’s show was resplendent with a slide show of Ethiopian photographs.

In 2004, Miles Cleret of Soundway Records, Will “Quantic” Holland and B+ spent three weeks in Ethiopia. The plan was to meet Mulatu and dig for records. B+ shot some 120 rolls of film and the best of that is represented here. The music is an exclusive track from the concert that didn’t make the film. “Ene Alantchi Alnorem” is a languid beautiful song of longing.

This slideshow along with lots of other treats are contained on the DVD.
