Neighborhood Concert: Antibalas

Saturday, February 18, 2017 4 PM El Museo del Barrio
URL Copied
Brooklyn-based Antibalas’ funky sound is inspired by Fela Kuti’s Nigerian Afrobeat grooves with a healthy dose of American soul music and Latin dance beats. Every Antibalas concert is a spicy mix of funk and jazz, with rhythms propelled by drums, horn, guitar, and bass. With a name derived from the Spanish word meaning “bulletproof,” Antibalas’ “jumpy juju guitar rhythms, spiritual-ancestral Yoruban drum patterns, and emphatic call-and-response choruses” (Los Angeles Times) lift audiences out of their seats.
