Debo Band will play Ethiopian pop music on Wednesday, November 6, at 7:30 p.m. in the Alumni Recital Hall of the Redfern Arts Center at Keene State College. Audience members will be encouraged to dance in front of the stage to the high-energy beat of this 11-piece band that plays saxophone, accordion, sousaphone, trumpet, and stringed instruments.

Two free community programs are scheduled the day of Debo Band’s performance in conjunction with Keene State’s 2013 Biennial Symposium. An “Introduction to Ethiopian Music” open workshop will take place at noon, Wednesday, November 6, in the Alumni Recital Hall. During the workshop band members will discuss Ethiopian history and introduce Ethiopian musical styles, including vocal, folk, modern, jazz, brass band, and pop. A post-show meet and greet and reception with the artists will take place after the performance in the lobby.

The Debo Band performance is a collaboration with the Keene State College Music Department and is presented in conjunction with the 2013 KSC Biennial Symposium activities. It is funded in part by the New England States Touring program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the six New England state arts agencies.
