Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage Anywhere

FEATURED PERFORMANCE

 

ANTIBALAS / COCHEMEA / DJ TARA

Live from Central Park | Saturday, September 18

Antibalas (“bulletproof” in Spanish) is an ensemble of quintessentially New York musicians making original Afrobeat and Afrocaribbean-inspired jazz and funk music. Founded in 1998 by Martín Perna with players from Brooklyn’s Daptone label, Antibalas grew from a local fixture to international feature on jazz and world music stages in the mid-2000s. Their mastery of the repertoire of Afrobeat icon Fela Kuti earned them a stint on Broadway in 2009 as the core of Bill T Jones’s FELA! Musical, and to later house band roles performing the music of Aretha Franklin, David Byrne and Paul Simon at Carnegie Hall (2014-2017). Their seventh and most recent album, Fu-Chronicles was nominated for 2020 GRAMMY® Best Global Music Album.
