Afrobeat ensemble Antibalas returned home over the weekend to play the band’s annual two-night run at Brooklyn Bowl.

The band performed Friday and Saturday night, with an opening set from DJ Rob Castillo each night. Friday’s show also featured a set by Kaethe Hostetter, performing Impressions of Ethiopa, and Saturday’s program included a set from saxophonist Stuart Bogie‘s Wooden Hands project. Bogie later joined Antibalas along with special guests Ray Mason (trombone), Max Kassoy (tenor sax), Dap Kings members Bosco Mann (percussion), Elizabeth Pupo-Walker (percussion), Dave Guy (trumpet), and Cochemea Gastelum (tenor sax), and Skatalites members Anant Pradhan and Pellito el Afrokan (congas).

The hometown run celebrated the end of a productive year for Antibalas. The Brooklyn-born collective—comprised of Jordan McLean (Trumpet), Andrew McGovern (Trumpet), Drew Vandewinckel (Tenor sax), Martín Perna (Baritone sax/flute/percussion), Reinaldo deJesus (Congas), Kevin Raczka (Drums), Timothy James (Guitar), Bryan Vargas (Guitar), Jake Pinto (Keys), Marcus Farrar (Shekere/vox)—has kept busy since the departure of singer/percussionist Duke Amayo in 2021. The band recently recorded two albums worth of new music that was honed on the road touring throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Mexico. No word yet on when the new music will be released.
