The foundations of Ethio-jazz
Culture Trip stands with Black Lives Matter. Following in the footsteps of his uncle, Kervok Nalbandian, a renowned maestro in Ethiopia , Nalbandian took over as the head of the National Opera when his uncle retired. Often regarded as the pioneer of modern Ethiopian music, Nalbandian undeniably set the basis for the evolution of Ethio-jazz. The father of Ethio-jazz as we now know it is Mulatu Astatke. Born in in Jimma, a city in the Western part of Ethiopia, Astatke surprisingly chose to study aeronautic engineering in North Wales in the late s. Formally introduced to music and the arts during his studies, which allowed for many electives, Astatke discovered his natural talent and eventual passion for music. Astatke went on to study classical music and instruments at Trinity College in London and worked with a number of leading British jazz players. However, inspired by other African students in London who were presenting their music and culture to European audiences, he desired to compose and promote Ethiopian music.
