Antibalas

New York-based Antibalas were formed in 1998 by musicians from King Changó, the Soul Providers, and the Daktaris. Influenced by Nigerian Afro-beat, American soul, and Latin dance grooves, Antibalas started playing at clubs around New York, hosting a weekend party called Africalia, giving them the opportunity to perform their particular style based on the combination of different cultures immersed in the band. After recording Liberation Afrobeat, the live album, Live in New York! Summer 1999, was released. Liberation Afro Beat, Vol. 1 was issued in early 2001. The group returned to recording in 2004 and issued Who Is This America? on the Rope-a-Dope label, followed by Security on Anti Records in 2007. After extended touring and studio and live collaborations by its various members, Antibalas returned with a self-titled album in the summer of 2012. ~ Drago Bonacich, Rovi

There is reggae other than Bob Marley, there is funk other than James Brown, and there is Afro beat other than Fela Kuti. Open your ears, perhaps your mind will follow. Perhaps. Big Respect Antibalas!

If you get the chance, go see Fela! Great play about the man himself, with all the music done by Antibalas. Best show I've ever seen on Broadway.

I take it back they finally added Fela! good job pandora

yeah Pandora is really failing on the Fela tip. How are you going to have artists whos style is totally influenced by the father of afro-beat and not have the man himself?
