Performing Artists

**Debut UK Show**
“The Boston-¬based band Debo Band gives the psychedelic music heard on the Ethiopiques collections a high¬spirited revamp.” ¬¬- The Village Voice
“Guitar solos, massed vocals, violin and brass rush in like a Red Bulled marching band. Dance at your own risk.” ¬¬- Rolling Stone
“Boston¬-based Debo Band has caught fire of late with one of the finest post-¬Ethiopiques presentations of modern Ethiopian jazz.” -¬¬ Huffington Post
Debo Band are a large ensemble led by Ethiopian-American saxophonist Danny Mekonnen and fronted by charismatic vocalist Bruck Tesfaye.

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