KCRW Presents: Antibalas

September 19, 2012The 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.
