an afrobeat/funk/jazz fusion transports around a vibrant and richly textured sonic territory that has us wanting to return again and again.

this is an epic Afro-Western Trilogy searching for solace from American political opportunism, greed and vengeance. Through its battle cry of resistance against exploitation and displacement, these long-form compositions investigate oppression in 1800s America that eerily mirror the current state of the country. With a blessing from the Fela Kuti legacy early in the band’s career, ANTIBALAS has long been revered for re- popularising the classic Afrobeat sound while adding their distinct New York City grit to the mix. Influences of punk rock, free jazz, and hip-hop seep into their expansive works to define a truly 21st century translation of the Afrobeat genre and beyond.
