For this New Sounds show, listen to the Afrobeat party band Antibalas, formed in 1998 and modeled the outfit after the late great Fela Kuti's Africa 70 band.  The Brooklyn-based music collective recently released a self-titled effort, the first in five years, featuring the track below, “Dirty Money,” on the heels of their run as house band for the Broadway musical, “Fela!”
