by Jason Bentley, KCRW Music Director
Sep 19, 2012 (KCRW-FM
) — The 11-member Brooklyn collective visited KCRW on one of Los Angeles' hottest summer days. Antibalas, known for its spitfire festival appearances -- as well as its role in the musical Fela!
-- is considered one of the leading purveyors of Afrobeat music. Here, it brings the heat in "Dirty Money."
The Brooklyn collective Antibalas recently played a live set for KCRW on one of Los Angeles' hottest summer days. The 11-piece band is one of the leading purveyors of Afrobeat music and didn't disappoint, bringing the heat throughout a seamless four-song jam, of which we present "Dirty Money" here. The group spends a lot of time on the road, and you can see plenty of evidence of that in this performance.
