CD Review: Antibalas 

Antibalas (Daptone)

Members of this 12-piece Brooklyn ensemble had major parts in the hit Broadway production Fela!, based on the late African-music superstar's life. So their Afrobeat chops, which may not come naturally, are unquestionably earned. Their first album in five years is more political than past efforts, with songs touching on the economic crisis, but once the horns and polyrhythmic beats get worked up, your feet will get the real message.
