Musical Interlude: Antibalas – Big Man

Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra - big man

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. Their song “Big Man” is not only faithful to the afrobeat movement but also breaks down the modern system pretty well.
