Antibalas – “Antibalas” – [Daptone Records]

Featuring Gabriel Roth of the Dap Kings this Brooklyn based group has not released in 5 years, instead curating the acclaimed FELA on Broadway. There is a lot to like with classic guitar riffs, bright and billowy brass, rhythmic keyboard. Throw in Funky guitar, soul jazz organ with intermittent latin horns and you have a tasty Yoruban/Brooklyn stew. This Antibalas version is not your Fela Kuti’s Nigerian Afrobeat filled with angry political protest of the late 20th century. This 21st century version embodies the principles of grassroots revolutionary movements that would fit nicely with today’s Occupy Movement. Musical democracy at its finest
