WOW! AMERICAN AFROBEAT IN 2003 – BAND GEEK POSTS ANTIBALAS AFROBEAT ORCHESTRA | Open Source Music

“Hypocrite” was originally hosted at the now-defunct Epitonic.com, a real go-to site for independent artists. This Brooklyn-based combo based on Fela Kuti’s Africa 70, played afrobeat. They didn’t play a concert for the first year of existence, block parties, and park shows sufficed. This band became popular in the early 2000s. Antibalas has performed in 35 countries, from Japan to Turkey to Portugal to Australia, and throughout New York City.

Here’s what Band Geek said back then:

“Huge, Fela-style Afrobeat from Brooklyn”

I found this again recently at Youtube:

I’m a music lover who started as a music fan extraordinaire. I got this opportunity to form my own musical combo. We’ve recorded “Space Mountain Blues.” I’m very happy with our first effort. Our next recording is going to be completed soon. We have also released the masterpiece “Mankind” featuring Son Of Pete. The coolest thing is I get to tell the !st born what to do.
