“For Zap Mama, the African diaspora offers limitless connections, and the group can crisscross the Atlantic in the course of a song.” The New York Times
“Antibalas is musical democracy in action, and an inspiring example of a band practicing what they preach.” BBC
Collaborating for the first time ever, Zap Mama and Antibalas will come together to celebrate the evolution of contemporary Afro music. From Afrobeat to Afropop, Zap Mama mixes African vocal techniques with European polyphony, while Antibalas effortlessly seams Afrobeat with New York City Latin funk and the traditional drumming of Cuba and West Africa.
