about

We've discovered this 9-piece band from Melbourne australia last year, with their album 'The Matador', which made it to Paris DJs' 10 best albums of 2012,. We've been eagerly asking for someone to 'press this 70’s ethio-jazz and afro-funk Morricone meets Mulatu afro-blaxploitation soundtrack on vinyl ASAP' but alas it hasn't happened yet. Thankfully the band is now preparing a second full-length, and this marvelous new piece of Cinematic Ethio-Funk announces great things to come…


About Papa Chango :
Whether you’re lulled into a trance by the dark, visceral melodies or energized by the afro-inspired rhythms you will be moved, one way or another, by Papa Chango. With a line-up comprising horns, percussion, guitars and a mighty Farfisa organ, the Melbourne based 9-piece bring a modern flavour to the sounds of the 1970’s Ethio-jazz and afro-funk movements.

Latest Releases :
- The Matador (CD/Digital, self-released, 2012)
- Enter the Dragonfly (free download, 2012)
