The UC Theatre Presents: Mulatu Astatke with Orchestra Gold

Due to unforeseen circumstance, Mulatu has to reschedule his North American Tour. His show at The UC Theatre has been rescheduled for February 28th and 29th, 2020.

This show is still all ages. All tickets purchased for the May & December dates will be honored in February.

We are so sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but promise it will be worth the wait.

ABOUT MULATU ASTATKE

Since collaborating with The Heliocentrics in 2009 for Strut, he has continued recording and is a major draw on the global touring circuit.

Drawing deeply on Mali’s musical history, OG blends analog, rhythmic dance music together with elements of psychedelic soul. With roots Malian drumming and the deep wisdom of Mariam’s vocals, OG moves audiences from the inside out.
