Debo Band

With its rolling grooves, heavy arrangements, funky horn sections, and sophisticated singers, Ethiopian pop music's so-called golden age (1969-74) bears scant resemblance to any other African style of the time. Boston's Debo Band captures the era's essence and integrates more recent styles into its eleven-member dance floor rumpus, embellishing the whole shebang with accordion, strings, sousaphone, and other instruments more closely associated with Eastern Europe than with East Africa.
