New York (Tadias) – Teddy Afro’s upcoming show promises to be the city’s biggest Ethiopian music event in two years.

Teddy Afro, who is renowned as Ethiopia’s Bob Marley for his socially conscious lyrics, will stage a show in Manhattan on Saturday.

The last such big gathering in New York took place in the summer of 2008 when Ethiopiques enthusiasts and curious New Yorkers were treated to an astonishing fusion rock, jazz and eskista featuring singers Mahmoud Ahmed and Alemayehu Eshete accompanied by the Either Orchestra. The legendary duo were followed by saxophonist Getatchew Mekurya along with the Dutch band the Ex.

This weekend’s concert by Teddy Afro is part of the artist’s 2010 American tour, which was kicked off in Washington, D.C. earlier this year.
