Before his January 2010 performance in Washington, D.C., Ethiopian star Teddy Afro had not played a show in the United States since 2007 -- more than 8,000 fans turned out to welcome him to the nation's capital. Next week, Afro who has been entangled by legal and political problems in the past decade (including a brief sting in jail), will perform in New York City for the first time in his career. Needless to say, fans of Ethiopian music (and just good music in general) have been waiting a long time for this.
The details for the event, organized by a tag-team effort of Massinko Production and Bethlehem Ent., are below. Then make sure you check out the feature article that our very own Banning Eyre put together following the D.C. show by clicking here.
