I aftes besøgte en legende Aarhus —- Den etiopiske musiker Hailu Mergia er bosat i Washington, hvor han i mange år har kørt taxa. I pauserne tager han sit batteridrevne Yamaha-keyboard frem og jammer på bagsædet. Det er også i bilen, at han skriver sin musik. Han er en visionær skikkelse, som revolutionerede den etiopiske folkemusik ved at anvende moogs og synthezisere. Mergia (som er enten 71 eller 72 – man gik ikke så meget op i fødselsattester dengang) voksede op nær Addis Ababa og var op gennem 1960-70’erne stilskabende med sit orkester Walias Band. Medlemmerne var altid velklædte, og i takt med deres voksende popularitet, blev koncerterne længere og længere. I 1981 emigrerede bandet til USA, men mødte aldrig de rigtige folk, som kunne promovere deres musik, og Walias Band blev opløst. På det nye album “Lala Belu” kører Hailu Mergia noget amerikansk bop og fusion ind over de rullende afrogrooves. #hailumergia #aarhus #radar #ethiojazz #ethiojazzlegend #ethiojazznight #aarhusjazzfestival @stiftendk

Titta en till etiopisk jazzfarbror som är i stan #hailumergia + Sounds of Sisso från Tanzania (La Banchina-bad emellan) #soundsofsisso #labanchina

2013, US. Awesome Tapes From Africa.

I have a good sized crate of newly acquired tunes to catch up on, and upon look’n thru I was stoked that there was actually a good chunk of modern bands in here, (not all but some are issued or reissued for the first time) some of my fave surprises are the Maggot Heart 12” which is a utter complete Rocker and so fun to turn up loudly (and who actually have a new lp that comes out tomorrow! Chk @teratologysav fer info) @crypttrip lp is addictive as hell, many repeated spins so far, @timmys_organism is always a wild ride full of alienated punk guts just marinating in a pool of possum bile... mmm yumm! Hailu Mergia =Ethiopian Jazz chuffness supreme, @hereliesman grooves hard, The Octopus, also from Detroit , Laughing Hyenas reissues (BRUTAL!) @woodenshjips and this motherfucker of a live album by @thereplacements sounds so damn good- if you wanted to hear those mid 80’s songs w/o that dated 80’s drum production, then check this for full on Rock’n Bob Stinson action. #chimbotrecords #maggotheart #timmysorganism #hailumergia #octopus #laughinghyenas #woodenschjips #crypttrip #thereplacements
