Ethiopian Rock n Roll Comes to America

Ethiopian Rock n Roll Comes to America

We love seeing people push boundaries and expand beyond the conventional.  So we're excited to witness the emergence of a new band from the land of 13 months of sunshine.  For y'all that don't know...that's Ethiopia.  The Jano Band is serving up its own take on rock n' roll fused with traditional Ethiopian melodies and sounds.  They've also teamed up with Bill Laswell to release their first CD.  Some of you might know BL as the husband of famed Ethiopian singer Gigi.  And where is Gigi these days?  (I'm just saying...)  Personally, I want to see them link up with Tommy T and Gogol Bordello!  That's some mind-bending music for yo' behind!

Either way, this 10-member ensemble may be onto something.  But we encourage you to judge for yourself at one of their upcoming concerts throughout the states.  They are performing in Philly this Saturday, Aug. 24th.  For more concert info., check their site here.

And in the meantime, learn more about Ethiopia's new rock band through their interview with CNN.
