UNDERRATED: Debo Band

If you saw <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB002577" title="Jim Jarmusch" href="/topic/entertainment/jim-jarmusch-PECLB002577.topic">Jim Jarmusch</a>'s "Broken Flowers," you heard the mix of jazz, African and Latin music that defined vintage Ethiopian pop and bandleader Mulatu Astatke. Now this Boston-based band has picked up the same thread with an electrifying new album on Seattle's Sub Pop Records. Full of churning strings, driving horns and flashes of klezmer, Debo Band's eclectic sound should keep any summer barbecue cooking.
