Since 1997 the Éthiopiques series has made Ethiopian music a hipster obsession, exposing jazz heads and rockists to the jazzy funkiness that emanated from East Africa in the ’60s and ’70s. (Never heard of the collection? You may have heard songs from Volume 4—there are now 28 volumes in total—in Jim Jarmusch’s 2005 film Broken Flowers.) At Drom on Jan 11 for the Electric Cowbell and Barbes APAP showcase listeners will get a chance to hear a sliver of those tunes live in a performance by Washington, D.C.’s The Feedel Band. The group features saxophonist Moges Habte, who was born in Addis Ababa, and can be heard performing the funky James Brown Band-influenced cut “Muziqawi Silt” on Éthiopiques’ Volume 13 with his ’70s group The Walias Band. The group is currently working with DC-based producer Thomas Gobena-known for his work as the bass player in Gogol Bordello and his production of another Globalfest wonder-Debo Band-on a new full-length for Electric Cowbell Records. Feedel Band’s sound can best be described as a  merging of ’60s R&B and jazz with traditional Ethiopian songcraft.
