Antibalas (Spanish for "bulletproof") is a Brooklyn-based afrobeat band that is modeled after Fela Kuti's Africa 70 band and Eddie Palmieri's Harlem River Drive Orchestra. Founded in 1998, and currently including 15 musicians, Antibalas' music generally follows the musical architecture and language of afrobeat, but also incorporates elements of jazz, funk, dub, improvised music, and traditional drumming from Cuba and West Africa. Their new album album "Fu Chronicles" is set to be released on February 7, 2020!
