Following Debo band's show at The Sanders Theater earlier tonight please join us to celebrate the gig with an after party at The Lizard featuring four amazing DJ's. This year Debo Band played seven shows over the course of two sold out-residencies at Lizard Lounge. Tonight, after their show at Harvard, they'll be celebrating another banner year as they prepare to enter the studio in November to record their sophomore album. Joining them are four stellar DJs who'll be spinning the best in global beats from Ethiopia, South America, the Middle East and beyond, plus banging American cuts of Deep House, Chicago House, Detroit techno and other sub-genres.
Riobamba is an Ecuadorian-Lithuanian DJ, event-maker, and writer based in Brooklyn.
Riobamba has recently returned to the States after spending a year in Bogotá, Colombia, where she immersed herself in club culture, and research funded by the Fulbright-mtvU program. Her research, focusing on urban music culture, investigated instances of new levels of artistic agency and self-representation for musicians powered by low-barrier, democratized access to digital music production tools and distribution networks.
Now back in the United States, she's the Music Editor at alt-Latino arts & culture platform Remezcla, and newly a member of the Dutty Artz crew. Riobamba also continues as resident at Boston's transnational bass night Picó Picante, which she co-founded in 2011 under the alias Pajaritos with DJ partner Ernesto Morales.
COMB AND RAZOR
Since the release of their first compilation, Brand New Wayo in May 2011, Uchenna Ikonne, founder of Comb and Razor Sound has been working diligently to "bring the best in cool and rare Nigerian music and pop culture oddities"
Ikonne, also a writer, DJ, and filmmaker entered into the music industry because a great sense of moral integrity and obligation he felt towards the artists and performers he loved to listen to. "I know this might sound crazy in this era of 'free content' but when I was blogging I always felt this sense of guilt that I was ripping off the artists in some way. I know people would tell me what does it matter if it has been buried for years anyways so it is not as if they would even get paid from it."
INNER ACTION and discoduro round out the night!
