Hollywood ArtsPark Experience: Antibalas
Friday, January 24, 2020
Brooklyn’s own Afropop-funk-dance big band Antibalas, is probably your favorite band’s favorite band. The 12-piece plus ensemble ranges freely through all kinds of funk, Afro-Cuban music, loping rhythms of Ethiogroove, Caribbean dance, punk rock, and extraplanetary cosmic jazz. And that’s in addition to having been credited with introducing Afrobeat (in the tradition of the late Nigerian saxophonist, singer, bandleader and activist Fela Kuti) to a global audience.
They are touring in support of the new release, Fu Chronicals. Recorded last Summer, over 17 musicians and singers crammed into the storied Daptone House of Soul in Bushwick to record the massive body of work.
