This event takes place at Barbican Centre, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
The music that became known as Ethio-jazz is a compelling fusion of traditional styles with funk, jazz and soul. Its creator, Mulatu Astatke has a musical history rivalled by few. He has contributed music to the film work of Jim Jarmush, been sampled by the biggest names in hip-hop and played to audiences of thousands at festivals around Europe.

Fatima Bramma-Sey, better known as simply Fatima, is a Swedish born, London based soul songstress recording on Floating Points’ and Alexander Nut’s Eglo Records. Her ability to improvise and cover a wide range of musical styles was an inspiration to Nut, who quickly became a fan and invited the young Swede into the Eglo fold.
Fatima’s musical approach is also deeply tied to her own diverse roots. Growing up in Sweden as the child of a Senagelese/Gambian mom who owned a boutique in Stockholm that traded in African wares, Fatima was exposed to the rich vibrations of West African music from an early age, sparking an interest in the many musical styles that African rhythms have engendered. Now she’s managed to bring all those raw styles together.
