Description

Antibalas will bring the Afrobeat party to Amoeba Hollywood in support of their recent album, Where The Gods Are In Peace (out now on Daptone Records). Pick up the new album at the in-store and get a free in-store poster with purchase - while they last! (Due to time constraints the band will not be doing a signing after the show). PLEASE NOTE: Eventbrite tickets are not required for this event.

"Antibalas is musical democracy in action, and an inspiring example of a band practicing what they preach." - BBC Music

Playing live at The Growlers 6 in San Pedro, October 29th.

Where The Gods Are In Peace pays respect to the forefathers of Afrobeat with compositions spanning nine to 15 minutes in length. With a blessing from the Fela Kuti legacy early in the band’s career, ANTIBALAS has long been revered for re-popularizing 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.

Born in a Brooklyn warehouse in 1997, 12 piece ensemble Antibalas is credited with introducing Afrobeat to a wider global audience, influencing countless musicians and developing a live show that is the stuff of legend. Members of Antibalas served as musical directors and the house band in the Broadway hit FELA! and penned original music for the show. Members have also recently collaborated/performed with Iron and Wine, Sharon Jones & theDap-Kings, Mark Ronson, TV on the Radio and The Roots.
