Highline Ballroom, Chelsea Wednesday February 11 2015
It's always a party when Antibalas plays. This Brooklyn-based Afrobeat collective, which has collaborated with TV on the Radio, appeared in Broadway's Fela! and shared stages with Amy Winehouse and Paul Simon, delivers its patented concoction of funked-up guitar lines, vigorous brass blasts and groovy organ riffs. Here the group pairs with Zap Mama, a.k.a. Belgian-Congolese vocalist Marie Daulne.
