Clip: Season 1 | 8m 41s

The music of Antibalas is party music, but it’s innately political. What does that mean for a band that is trying to bushwhack its way through the tangled world of today’s music industry? It means they live the Afrobeat lifestyle from the streets of Brooklyn to the Broadway stage. The band’s Nigerian-born lead singer Amayo and trumpet player Jordan McLean share their experiences with Marco Werman.
