The Ellis Mano Band have put their own unique stamp on the blues which is American born but has now influenced musicians everywhere and can be heard world-wide.

On the upcoming studio album that will drop on on June 25th, “We chose the album title “Ambedo” because it reflects the state of the process of recording an album,” says guitarist Edis Mano. “Ambedo” refers to the tendency both to reflect and to absorb. Musicians like us do it all the time, especially when we compose new songs and create a new album.” Stay tuned for much more from this band and their upcoming album review from Rock at Night.
