AFRO-DUB SESSIONS is back! Come kick off your Memorial Day weekend with the SLF crew FRIDAY NIGHT as we take our renowned AFRO-DUB party out of the club and into an awesome loft space in Brooklyn. As a special treat, we’re bringing in Boston’s Ethiopian groove collective, DEBO BAND to help you get loose on the dance floor. SUPER HI-FI, New York’s hottest Afro-Dub band, will also perform, and SLF resident DJ’s LINH, Q-MASTAH and LIL TIGER will keep the party popping on the decks.

If you’ve never seen DEBO BAND before, you’re in for a treat. DEBO is not your mother’s Ethiopian dance band. Searing horns, crooning vocals, slinky funk grooves. Dubbed out violin and accordion. Bass-heavy, brazen, and dense. Led by Ethiopian-American saxophonist Danny Mekonnen and fronted by charismatic vocalist Bruck Tesfaye, DEBO‘s performances bring together the best of the last forty years of Ethiopian music, with a reverence for the vintage sounds of the 1970s and a commitment to discovering contemporary gems, as well as developing new compositions.

Don’t forget to RSVP for the address to the party!
