‘To Know Without Knowing’, Mulatu Astatke and Black Jesus Experience’s 2020 album is their second together. A grooving transcontinental gem, recorded in Melbourne, Australia and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Filled with the warmth of the mentorship and friendship of their creative partnership honed over a decade of performing together in Africa, Australia and UK/Europe.
Mulatu Astatke is the Father of Ethio-Jazz and one of Africa’s most influential and enduring musical figures. Black Jesus Experience is a community of artists, centred around a twelve piece global-funk-machine born of Australia’s vibrant multiculturalism.
