DUR-DUR BAND Meet and Greet!

Dur-Dur Band were sensations in 1980s Mogadishu, a party band that fused synth-pop, funk, afrobeat, disco & more. The band crept into western listeners' consciousness thanks to the blog/label Awesome Tapes from Africa, who reissued their 1987 album Volume 5 last year. The group became inactive in the early '90s. Many of the band's members fled Somalia during the country's civil war. Several ended up in the U.S., including the group's core, Sahra Dawo and Abdinur Daljir, who now reside in Columbus, Ohio.

Their show at The Cedar Cultural Center on November 14 marks their first-ever performance in America! Dur-Dur Band will follow that historic show by joining us at Treehouse on Saturday, November 15 for a special "meet and greet" appearance! Come hang out, pick up a sale-priced copy of Volume 5 on LP or CD, get autographs and pictures, and have a good time hanging out with these legends of African disco-funk!
