“Sare Kon Kon”
From Antibalas’ Antibalas
Liner notes: Breakneck rhythms, exuberant call-and-response vocals, and blistering sax riffs unleash party energy on the band’s first album in five years.
Behind the music: The sprawling Antibalas collective once included Daptone Records cofounder Gabe Roth (who produces here). Some members were involved in the Tony Award-winning musical Fela!
