The show will immediately follow the annual Obie Awards ceremony. Members of Antibalas will also be featured throughout the night as cast and musicians from the hit Broadway musical FELA!  which was just nominated for 11 Tony awards  will be performing at the ceremony. FELA!, produced by Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter and Will & Jada Pinkett Smith among others, is a musical based on the life of the iconic African composer and performer Fela Anikulapo-Kuti. In full costume, members of the vibrant cast will perform two numbers at the Obies: Everything Scatter and Yellow Fever.

ABOUT ANTIBALAS:
Using the revolutionary blueprint of afrobeat as a launching pad, the dozen-strong members of Antibalas weave a rich tapestry of latin, jazz, classical, funk and soul into their rhythmic, horn-driven mix. Always looking to push their unique sound further, Antibalas recruited heralded musician/producer John McEntire (Tortoise, Stereolab, Tom Ze) to produce 2007's Security. The album was received with critical acclaim and high praise from critics and fans alike.

As distinguished as their recordings may be, Antibalas has truly become renowned for their relentless live shows. The band has averaged over 100 concerts a year, incessantly traversing the U.S, Canada and Europe in venues large and small be they the sweaty clubs of Brooklyn or in front of hordes of festival goers around the globe in exotic places like La Reunion and the Canary Islands.

It's not by chance the Village Voice exclaimed "their music is right on time," while The New York Times, the New Yorker, Rolling Stone magazine and a slew of others have taken serious notice. Last year, Antibalas spent their time working as arrangers, orchestrators, composers and performers for the Off Broadway show "Fela!".
