Since forming in 1998, a year after the death of Nigerian afrobeat creator Fela Kuti, Brooklyn-based 12-piece Antibalas has built on the sound's elastic formal perfection, polyphonic pleasures, horn-heavy arrangements, and rabble-rousing lyrics. Having worshipped at Fela's musical temple in Lagos, singer Sifu Amayo is a charismatic conduit of deep Yoruban soul and spirit. And as longtime members of the Daptone stable, Antibalas definitely know how to throw a party.
