Ayalew Live

We are collaborating with Now Again, Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom, Cornerstone Berkeley and ArtDontSleep for 3 nights of the Return of Ayalew Mesfin with Debo Band!

Ayalew Mesfin is among the legends of a 1970s Ethiopian funk era whose music was forced underground by his country’s government. Now, over 40 years later, his triumphant return gives us a chance to discover a rare & beautiful moment in music history.

Debo Band are a large ensemble led by Ethiopian-American saxophonist Danny Mekonnen and fronted by charismatic vocalist Bruck Tesfaye. Since their inception in 2006, the band has won raves reviews for their groundbreaking take on Ethiopian pop music.
