New York (TADIAS) – The Sub Pop group Debo Band, led by Ethiopian-American musician Danny Mekonnen, will be back in New York today (Sunday, September 16th) to perform with the legendary Joshua Light Show at NYU Skirball Center, while the Ethiopian dance troupe Fendika will perform at Joe’s Pub on October 2nd.

The electric combination of Debo Band’s Ethiopian-tinged beats along with the multimedia sensation of The Joshua Light Show promises to make this a one-of-a-kind experience. Debo Band released their self-titled debut album earlier this year.

Following the very successful collaborative performance of Fendika and Debo Band at the Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors Festival last year, we are also excited to have Fendika return to give a solo show at Joe’s Pub. The New York Times has dubbed Fendika’s frontman Melaku as “a happily superlative artist.”

We look forward to these two upcoming shows.
