This Island Earth
Sunday August 14th, 2011 with Alnoor Allidina
Enjoy it while it lasts

Summer is winding down but we keep things hot with The Debo Band, Ebo Taylor, Don Cherry, etc...
We begin with the upbeat sounds of Ethiopian groove from Boston-are Debo Band. They've been playing this music since 2006 and have actually toured Ethiopia, where they recorded their first EP. We are looking forward to the full-length release.
