Debo Band - Words and Music - 2012

Watch video of Debo Band doing its thing (very much) live in Studio A, then hear the whole session, tonight at 9pm on Words & Music.

If you've ever heard tunes from the "Golden Age" of Ethiopian music in the '60s and '70s, you'll understand why Debo Band holds that hypnotic sound at their core. But they also top it off with a dose of American funk. This 11-piece act from Boston is one of those bands you've got to hear to believe. One option is their self-titled debut album, which came out this summer. Another is to check out what they can do live, in this amazing Studio A performance.
