Debo Band

Debo Band (Ethiopian jazz/funk/pop) is an Ethio-groove collective that presents unique interpretations of classic Ethiopian jazz, funk and popular music. Their performances bring together the best of the last forty years, with a reverence for the vintage sounds of 1970s Ethiopia and a commitment to discovering contemporary gems. Last year, Debo prepared an original score for the Ethiopian short film, “Lezare.” Winner of the 2010 Boston Phoenix poll for Best World Music Act, Debo Band will release their first album this year.
