Antibalas

Afrobeat

The massive musical family known as Antibalas (Spanish for bullet-proof or anti-bullets) was born in 1998 in Brooklyn New York, and has since become one of the world’s leading Afrobeat bands, blending Afro-Cuban, avant classical, soul, rock, rap, reggae, and pop music. NPR has called their music “big and fun,” and recommends that “If they come to your town, drop what you're doing and go see them. Wear dancing shoes.”

Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore with The Guilty Ones

American Roots Music

Roots music legends Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore have been friends for 30 years, but only recently realized they had never played music with each other.  So in 2017, Grammy winner Alvin and Grammy nominee Gilmore, decided to hit the highway to swap songs, tell stories, and share their life experiences. Though Texas born Gilmore was twice named Country Artist of the Year by Rolling Stone, and California native Alvin first came to fame in the hard rocking rhythm and blues band The Blasters, they discovered that their musical roots in old blues and folk music are exactly the same. The result of their collaboration is a rich excavation of Western swing, blues and early rock ‘n’ roll.
