Boston’s own Debo Band plays a hard-driving strain of ’70s Ethiopian pop music with elements of rock, funk and jazz. The 11-piece band created a huge buzz at globalFEST and SXSW this year for its “incredible energy and passion and excellence.”—All Songs Considered, NPR. Next Ambiance/Sub Pop will release its hugely anticipated self-titled debut album on July 10.
World Music/CRASHarts will be presenting Debo Band, co-headlining with Latin-funk collective Grupo Fantasma, on Wednesday, July 11, at 9pm, at the Brighton Music Hall. Show is 18+. For tickets go to:
