Mulatu Astatke music in Jim Jarmusch movie
So it seems Mulatu's music will feature promimently in the new Jim Jarmusch film "Broken Flowers" starring Bill Murray. Can't wait to see it.On defining "Broken Flowers'" through its music:"Music often leads me. I discovered Mulatu Astatke's music maybe seven years ago, and I was blown away by a few things I found that he had recorded in the late sixties. I was on a hunt for a number of years: I bought some vinyl; some of his jazz stuff; some Latin jazz recorded in the states; other Ethiopian stuff. And then I was like, "Oh, man, how can I get this music in a film? It's so beautiful and score-like." Then when I was writing, I was like, "Well, this neighbor [Jeffrey Wright] is Ethiopian-American, I can turn him on to the music."
