June 12. This exotic, multicultural reggae Israeli outfit gives new meaning to the lyric “Do you remember Zion?” According to Zvuloon Dub System’s bio, the band’s Ethiopian-born lead singer Gili Yalo, “walked through the desert at age four on an exhausting journey with his family to the Promised Land—Israel.” The eight-member band was formed in 2006 and has since emerged as that nation’s leading world-reggae act, with a soulful, laidback, and highly danceable sound bearing influences that range from old-school roots reggae to Ethiopian jazz, 1970s rare-groove funk and soul, and Israeli Mizrahi music—a sound the group brings to the Bearsville Theater this month. With Bombmob. (NRBQ and the Whole Wheat Horns heat up June 15; Richard Thompson visits June 28.) 7pm. $20, $30. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406; Bearsvilletheater.com.
