Antibalas - an ever-evolving musical group
Antibalas was founded by Martin Perna in 1998, a multidisciplinary artist from Houston with Mexican American descent. It took a few months to finalise the original band members, totalling 11 by 1999. They started playing at block parties, public parks, and other non-commercial venues, and eventually scored a Friday night residency called ‘Africalia’ at local club No Moore. They became a hit and played there every week until the club was shut down two years later. In the meantime, Antibalas had started working on their own material and released their first album entitled ‘Liberation Afrobeat Vol. 1’ in 2000. They toured nationally and then internationally, visiting over 35 countries and playing with other guest artists such as sax player Seun Kuti and drummer Tony Allen. The band has also been involved in a musical production which celebrates the life of Nigerian musician Fela Kuti, arranging and performing the music for the show Fela! which opened off-Broadway in 2008 and then on Broadway in 2009. Over the course of the years, Antibalas has seen many changes to its band members; however, those that have remained the longest and played the biggest roles have been founder Martin Pena who plays the Baritone Sax, vocalist Duke Amayo, and Jordan McLean on the trumpet. Another thing that hasn’t changed is their unique sound, something you can also experience by buying your Antibalas tickets today.
