Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra

Take a break from the indie rock and listen to the Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra.

OK, what is Afrobeat?? "Afrobeat is a hybrid form of jazz and Nigerian traditional music popularized and developed in the late 1960s in Lagos, Nigeria by Fela Anikulapo Kuti. It also incorporates other elements of West African popular music such as highlife, palmwine, apala, Afrocuban, and Afro-American funk and soul music."
