    By the generally accepted conventions for transliterating the Ethiopic alphabet into the Roman alphabet, it's Astatqe, with the mark above the "e" being presumably for French readers. But I don't think anyone's screwing him by how they spell it, any more than they're screwing him by pronouncing it with an Anglophone accent. After all, what's the "correct" way to use the Roman alphabet for letters and sounds that don't even exist in it?
  • Avatar for Tricksta_P
    It says Mulatu Astatqé on the Ethiopiques albums I've bought. I don't care that more people are screwing Mulatu by downloading tracks with the Astatke spelling. And I'm not saying Astatqé is the only legitimate spelling, but that's what the albums say and I'm sticking with it.

    I am pushing for the "K." It has more plays and google results. If we can reason that it ought be "q" we can always try to change it, but can we agree somewhat to use either "q" or "k" ?
  • Avatar for ificantdance
    "K" and "q" are pronounced differently from each other in Amharic and other languages in and around Ethiopia, but the "q" sound doesn't exist in English so it's apt to be transliterated into the Roman alphabet as "k" sometimes. "Astatk'e," anyone? Putting a brief glottal stop after the "k" helps force the "k" sound further back in your throat, where the "q" sounds.

    He is credited as Astatqé on Éthiopiques albums.
  • Avatar for aproragadozo
    is it 'astatqé' or 'astatke'? i would say the latter, but i only saw him credited on the 'broken flowers' ost, and that might be the anglicised version of his name.. although what's in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet
  • Avatar for whitebicycle
    the plays for the "k" and "q" spellings should be merged.
