Good God! It’s Dereb The Ambassador’s Album Launch!
May 26th, 2011
Sydney based Ethiopian soul superstar Dereb the Ambassador is launching his self-titled album with an unforgettable live show at GoodGod Small Club on Friday 1st July.
Backed by a hand-picked 7 piece band made of Sydney’s finest musicians, Dereb mixes his own originals and traditional interpretations with covers of the vintage soul masterpieces made famous by artists from the 1960s and 70s such as Mahmoud Ahmed and Mulatu Astatqe, given wide exposure through the ‘Ethiopiques’ compilation series and the soundtrack to Jim Jarmusch’s film ‘Broken Flowers’.
‘Dereb The Ambassador’ was recorded by producer Tony Buchen using only pre 1970s equipment. The band features virtuoso musicians from bands including the Strides and Deep Sea Arcade. For a taste of the awesomeness, click here, and then here.

Joining him will be the nu-soul funk three piece, Lo Five, the new project from Al Goodman and Tam Morris of Tracky Dax fame.
