[Wadabo_updates] Uhuru Afrika's JUMP! featuring Debo Band - May 27 (Thursday)

Last month's initial JUMP! was an amazing evening. Beautiful music, great energy, wonderful crowd, and a great venue. I'm happy to say we're back next week for our second JUMP! featuring Boston's own ethio-groove collective - Debo Band. All the details below, and I look forward to seeing you on the dance floor.

Uhuru Afrika's Monthly Live Music sister party 'JUMP' returns!
Thursday May 27th 2010

JUMP Presents special guests:
DEBO BAND - Ethio-Groove Collective

Alongside Resident Urban Griots : ADAM GIBBONS & MAX PELA
Selekting the hottest dance tracks from Africa and across the Diaspora.
With Malian Master Percussionist SIDY MAIGA.

Debo Band, Boston’s own 11 piece Ethio-groove collective explores the unique sounds that filled the dance clubs of “Swinging Addis.” Immersed in the unlikely confluence of traditional East African polyrhythms, pentatonic scales, classic American soul & funk music, and the instrumentation of Eastern European brass bands, Debo Band produces a unique form of dance music.

If you could not join us for our launch party with Lamine Toure & Group Saloum, you missed an amazing evening of Music and dance in a new venue with so much space for dancing and lounging. However, that was just the beginning. Now every month you can dance, party, lounge, listen with us. We hope to see you on this special occasion!

  1. Hi-- could someone please contact me (I haven't been able to find an email address). We're having a fundraiser for an International Human Rights Commission that supports HIV prevention/Aids awareness/LGBT Equality in Africa, and we'd love for your group to be involved. Here are the details: http://rootsfundraiser.eventbrite.com/. Please email events@qwocboston. Some live percussions would be great!
