Created in Brussels in 2015, Azmari is a twisting musical journey that fuses psych-funk, Afrobeat, Ethio-jazz, and dub. Recorded in a rented room in Brussels in just three days, Ekera, meaning "the other world", is a deep hypnotic sound that blends asymmetrical rhythms with winding improvisations. From the Middle Eastern sounds and devilish rhythms of "Dolmus", a magnetic, free-jazz re-working of the Mulatu Astatke composition "Emnete", to the energetic and spellbinding flood of roaring saxes on "Mammouth", Azmari draw on influences including Herbie Hancock, Cymande, The Heliocentrics, Fela Kuti, and much more. Includes Metta Frequencies remix.
