DEREB THE AMBASSADOR + THE TAMBOURINE GIRLS
This event has passed and sales are now closed
Australia’s own Ethiopian superstar, Dereb the Ambassador and his big band of virtuoso musicians return to the Basement in June after some time out workshopping and recording a new album.
Inspired by the funky sounds of the great Ethiopian artists of the 60s and 70s, they deliver electrifying vintage soul. Well known as one of Ethiopia's most respected singers, Dereb the Ambassador's brand of addictive, gritty Ethio-soul has livened up crowds from WOMADelaide to Jeonju Sori World Music Festival Sth Korea and Japan. As word about Dereb the Ambassador continues to spread his mind-blowing vocal talents and energetic rhythms enthralls a growing fan base of happy music-savvy folk who know there's more to life than three-chord guitar rock.
"Electrifying, kaleidoscopic vintage soul... his blistering vocal attack is beyond compare: hail one of the world's most exhilarating new voices" - MAG
"Beautiful soulful joyous music that isn't afraid to groove. You can't go wrong." Bob Baker Fish
