Pssst.......Antibalas are making one of their rare excursions over the Pond. :w00t::welldone If anyone hasn't checked this band out they are an absolutely storming 12 man Afrobeat Band from Brooklyn. With a sound coming from the legendary era of Fela Kuti, they take Afrobeat Funk to a whole new level with their sycopated highly orchestrated horn section. Their Baritone is especially impressive, playing it with the dexterity of an Alto.

Tickets are a mere 10 quid, and there is a whole afternoon of African Jazz and Afrobeat funk, including the Benin's Gangbe Brass Band. I'll be there for sure, i'll be flying over from Denmark specially. Details below,

Barbican Hall

Afrobeat, latin, jazz and horn-driven funk and soul from 12-piece Antibalas (meaning bullt-proof). The breathtaking live shows of this Brooklyn-based band are legendary, their evocation of the spirit of Nigeria's Fela Kuti uncanny.

Opening the show are Benin's 8-piece Gangbe Brass Band, who blend traditional African sounds with western big-band jazz
