Debo Band

15 oktober, 19:00-23:00

AGMP presents direct from Boston, USA

DEBO BAND

**Debut UK Show**

“The Boston-­b​ased band Debo Band gives the psychedelic music heard on the E​thiopiques collections a high­s​pirited revamp.” ­­- T​he Village Voice

“Guitar solos, massed vocals, violin and brass rush in like a Red Bulled marching band. Dance at your own risk.” ­­- R​olling Stone

“Boston­-b​ased Debo Band has caught fire of late with one of the finest post-­E​thiopiques presentations of modern Ethiopian jazz.” -­­ H​uffington Post

Debo Band are a large ensemble led by Ethiopian-American saxophonist Danny Mekonnen and fronted by charismatic vocalist Bruck Tesfaye. Since their inception in 2006, the band has won raves for their groundbreaking take on Ethiopian pop music (think Ethiopiques), which incorporates traditional scales and vocal styles, alongside American soul and funk rhythms, and instrumentation reminiscent of Eastern European brass bands. Debo Band has received broad critical praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone & Pitchfork

Debo Band have shared stages with Gogol Bordello, Arcade Fire, Amadou & Mariam, (DJ) Questlove, The Family Stone, Antibalas, and Ethiopian great Tilahun Gessesse.
