A multiethnic Brooklyn band that jams like Fela Kuti? Interesting.
I’m talking about the Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra. And those of you registered at Calabash Music can get a FREE MP3 called “El Machete.” Follow this link.
“El Machete” is from the band’s 2001 CD, “Liberation Afro Beat, Vol. 1.” To hear the track streaming on my Vox site, click here.
