Because I’m a fan of anything Afro-Beat…
“Formed in 1998, Brooklyn’s own Antibalas takes as its cornerstone the hypnotic Afrobeat of the late Nigerian Afro-Pop master Fela Kuti. On stage, Antibalas (“Anti-bullets”) generates a relentless groove from the very first note, and the lyrics (sung in English, Spanish or Yoruba) outline a strong political message. Antibalas has opened for everyone from James Brown and Wyclef Jean to No Doubt and Trey Anastasio.”
