Debo Band To Perform At Bard College This Week

NORTHWEST DUTCHESS, N.Y. -- Fans of Ethiopian music won't want to miss the upcoming concert of the Debo Band on Thursday, Nov. 19, at Bard College.

Known for fierce, jagged, complex and galvanizing music, with a beefy horn section, biting violins and a lead singer with a convincing Ethiopian quaver, according to The New York Times, the band will perform at 8 p.m. at the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at 60 Manor Ave. at the college.

Debo Band brings back the 1960s golden age of Ethiopian music with innovative arrangements and original compositions. Since its inception in 2006, the band has won raves for its groundbreaking take on Ethiopian pop music, which incorporates traditional scales and vocal styles alongside American soul and funk rhythms, and instrumentation reminiscent of Eastern European brass bands.

Professor Maria Sonevytsky will host a pre-concert talk at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $15 and available here .
