Collaborating for the first time ever, the pioneering vocalist Zap Mama and Brooklyn-based band Antibalas come together to celebrate the evolution of contemporary African music. From Afrobeat to Afro-pop, Zap Mama offers a crazy kaleidoscope of sound encompassing everything from Pygmy dialects to urban French jazz and hip hop, while Antibalas effortlessly fuses Afrobeat with New York City Latin funk and traditional drumming of Cuba and West Africa.
“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
