These guys not only advance Fela's legacy creatively, they blow up the party. Try it, guaranteed you'll have some very happy feet.

As described on the cd-cover, "Antibalas is a diverse cooperative of music makers in Brooklyn, dedicated to making original revolutionary afrobeat music inspired by the chief priest Fela Anikulapo-Kuti as well as other visionary artists."
Some of their songs are also published on the "Africafunk"-cds and other afrobeat-samplers.
How to define their style? Of course, sometimes they sound like Fela Kuti, a bit less Afro and a bit more Jazz. The 4 horns varying from "bigband-like" to deepest funk. 5 Congaplayers & Drummers will make you dancing & shaking. Guitars are super-funky, the organ & the bassline will blow your mind away.
Tracks 5-8 recorded live at the Jazz Café, London.
If you like JB, Matata, Mandrill, Fela Kuti, Manu Dibango, Peter King etc, you have to buy this funky, groovy masterpiece!!! If you wanna buy only one CD in 2003, go an buy this one! I'm just too happy I did so!

Afrobeat is TOTALLY underrepresented in the mainstream airwaves, and that's a crying shame. I guess with very little lyrics to their music, an MTV appearance is out of the question; but that's MTV's loss. Don't miss out Antibalas.
I saw them live at the Temple Bar in LA and they blew me away. The orchestration of their big band is sublime with all the aggressiveness one would expect from those following in the footsteps of Fela Kuti. They groove and swing with incredible passion and intensity.
The song World War IV sums up the political stance of the group and you can't deny it.

Listen up all you revolutionaries, are you into political outrage, protest, and civil unrest? This is the album for you. This is some heavy stuff. Not heavy like with thundering guitar riffs and sneering vocals, this is afro-beat, this is jazz, this is hardcore! Mainly instrumental, the horn beats are solid, the bass lines thump, the beat is tribe like jungle. Influences from Parliament & James Brown can be heard as well. This symbol of power should really be categorized with the likes of other revolutionaries such as MC5, Public Enemy, Rage Against the Machine, the Minutemen, Bob Dylan, I could go on for hours.
